Episode Narrative A major winter storm tracked from eastern Colorado to northern Missouri and then to central Illinois December 18-19, 2008, and was the most significant winter event of the month. Heavy snow accumulations of 6 to 10 inches were widespread across northeast Iowa and northwest Illinois, mainly north of Highway 30. Roughly along the Interstate 80 corridor, 2 to 4 inches of sleet and up to 1/2 inch ice accumulations were reported. Locations south of I-80 in southeast Iowa, western Illinois and northeast Missouri experienced a major ice storm. Ice accumulations of 1/4 to nearly 1 inch were common, with many trees and branches down due to the weight of the ice. Scattered thunderstorms also developed helping to produce the heavy precipitation amounts. Power outages of up to a week occurred, especially in western Illinois, due to the ice storm.
Event Narrative A trained spotter measured 9.5 inches of snow 4 miles northeast of Stockton.
