23 Jan 2018, 11:46 am

Heavy snow, high wind, whiteout conditions, treacherous travel….the latest blast of wintry weather to push across the United States brought all of these concerns and more.  What developed as a storm in the Pacific Ocean late last week, moved across the country to the Atlantic Ocean by Tuesday.  During the event, blizzard conditions were a common occurrence in the central United States.

Millions of Americans in the Mountain West, Great Plains, Upper Midwest and Northeast got quite the dose of winter weather.  Here are a few top snowfall totals from several states throughout the nation.  Many areas accumulated well over one foot of snow!

Even parts of northern Michigan and Maine picked up over 6 inches of snow, while areas of New England battled freezing rain.
