Episode Narrative March roared in like a lion, as an intense low pressure system tracked from Oklahoma to central Iowa, and then into the western Great Lakes. Strong winds accompanied this storm across the region, with snow and blowing snow a significant problem in eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois. Snowfall amounts ranged from 1 to 3 inches mainly north of Highway 34. Sustained winds of 35 to 40 mph with gusts of 45 to 50 mph were common across the area. Isolated gusts over 50 mph were measured. This created dangerous whiteout conditions. Besides the snow, there was locallized heavy rain of .75 to 1.5 inches falling on partially frozen ground, which caused significant ponding of water.
