Illinois Weather Trivia
11/25/1908
A tornado moved across 22 miles of Randolph and St. Clair Counties of southwest Illinois. Homes were overturned, a barn destroyed, and livestock killed. The local mail carrier was injured, as was the person that ran to warn him of the oncoming tornado.
11/25/1950
Record cold continued across central Illinois. Champaign's low temperature of 5 degrees below zero set a November record for the city. Record lows for the date were also set at Peoria, with a low of 1 below zero, and Springfield, with a low of zero.
11/25/1996
A winter storm brought a mixture of freezing rain, sleet, snow, and high winds to central Illinois. This was the result of a strong low pressure system moving northeast from the lower Mississippi Valley, combining with cold air pushing south out of the Northern Plains. Significant icing occurred, causing numerous accidents and power outages. Several injuries were reported.
