Episode Narrative Intense low pressure brought near record snowfalls to the region on February 5-6, 2008. Copious amounts of gulf moisture, combined with a deepening storm system, resulted in periods of heavy snow and embedded thundersnows. The surface low tracked from northwest Arkansas to southern Illinois, while the deepening upper low moved into northern Illinois. The snow fell for more than 24 hours dumping widespread 10 to 15 inch amounts in portions of eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois. From southeast Iowa to western Illinois 4 to 7 inches of snow accumulated. The highest total was near Winslow in Stephenson county in Illinois with a whopping 18 inches. In some areas this was the biggest snowfall since January 1979. Schools were closed and there were many cars stuck in the deep snow or slid into ditches.
