Storm not as strong as expected

New Hampton gets about 3 inches of snow as system tracks further south

It wasn’t a “dud” but the storm that hit Chickasaw County didn’t pack as big of a punch as forecasters said it would.

New Hampton officially received 3 inches of snow on Tuesday, far below the 6 to 9 inches that were originally forecast as the storm took a more southward path than expected.

The I-80 corridor saw the most snowfall as areas from Des Moines to Iowa City received 9 to 12 inches of snow.

Still, the storm was strong enough in Chickasaw County to make for difficult travel, especially late Tuesday afternoon into the evening.
