Episode Narrative A winter storm impacted portions of northeast Iowa starting on December 23rd, continuing through the Christmas holiday. Unlike the December 8 through 9 storm, this system was able to bring a surge of warmer air into the area, which produced a variety of precipitation types, including rain, freezing rain, snow and sleet. From December 23 through December 26, rainfall amounts totaled 1 to 2 inches. During the same time period, snowfall accumulations were mainly 2 to 5 inches, with the highest amount of 5.5 inches reported at Cresco (Howard County). Highest ice accumulations were around a quarter of an inch.
Event Narrative An area of freezing rain moved into the area during the afternoon hours of December 23rd before changing over to snow. Ice accumulations totaled three eights of an inch in Edgewood.
