The storm is over and the final numbers are impressive. The 12-17" totals in eastern Jo Daviess County are some of the largest I've seen in quite some time around the region. If you read my posts the past few days you were aware that I was quite concerned about this storms ability to over perform. There were some very challenging aspects but I did go hard with the numbers Friday evening when others were way more conservative. My assessment was for 5-8" plus totals from the Quad Cities northeast to Freeport and Madison Wisconsin. I also noted with convection ad banding locally heavier swaths were likely if the transition to snow went as expected. Thundersnow was reported in numerous locations and the transition was right on the money. (All of this is on the record for you to read in previous posts). I was in the lead on this storm compared to all other sources and grateful it performed the way it did. It takes serious confidence and hard work to be out on the ledge but that's the way we roll at

Here's that swath from the Quad Cities to Freeport to Madison.

Some actual reports within the band

A tighter perspective of my immediate area.

Some parts of the NW Quad Cities metro saw 9-10 inches with Park View reporting 11.3"

As usual the far southeast missed out but that was expected. The snow shut off very sharply in the NW too with little snow from Cedar Rapids to Monticello and just northwest of Dubuque. That was also well forecast. Anyway, it's a wrap and I'm going to bed. Roll weather...TS
