Episode Narrative An arctic cold front swept across the region on January 20, 2012 bringing colder temperatures and moderate to heavy snow to portions of the area. A clipper low pressure system and strong upper level disturbance helped to enhance the snowfall rates. Snowfall amounts ranged from 4 to 8 inches mainly north of Interstate 80. The highest accumulation was 8 inches at Winslow, Illinois in Stephenson county. An observer in Maquoketa, Iowa in Jackson county measured 7.5 inches of snow. Temperatures were in the single digits and teens but luckily wind speeds were only 10 to 15 mph. This kept blowing and drifting of the snow to a minimum.
Event Narrative Trained spotters measured 7.5 inches of snow at Stockton and 7.0 inches at Elizabeth.
