Episode Narrative After being hit by heavy snow December 18 and 19, northeast Iowa was impacted by another winter storm December 20 through 21. Highest snowfall amounts were roughly 4 to 6 inches, with specific reports of 6.5 inches at Cresco (Howard County) and 5.9 inches at Clermont (Fayette County).
Northwest winds gusting to 30 to 40 mph in the wake of an arctic cold front produced near white-out conditions, along with 2 to 4 foot drifts. In addition to the wind and snow, sharply falling temperatures resulted in bitterly cold wind chills of 20 below to 40 below, which lingered into December 22.
Event Narrative Lowest wind chill values hit -43F at Monona.
