Illinois Weather Trivia for February 3rd

2/3/2010
During a typical February, 5 to 7 inches of snow will fall in central Illinois. Since records began in the 1880's, Springfield and Peoria have had about a dozen Februaries which received over a foot of snow. February of 1900 was the snowiest in both cities, thanks to a major snowstorm at the end of the month which deposited 12 to 18 inches of snow across the region. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the winter of 1994-95 saw only 7.8 inches of snow in Peoria, tying a record for the least snow in a winter. Springfield's least snowiest winter occurred in 1953-54, with only 5.8 inches.
