Illinois Weather Trivia for March 26th

3/26/2002
A winter storm produced areas of heavy snow and ice accumulations, from the morning of the 25th through the morning of the 26th. Snowfall totals of 2 to 4 inches, along with significant blowing and drifting snow, created near whiteout conditions in Peoria, Woodford, northern Tazewell, and northwest McLean Counties the morning of the 25th. Numerous accidents occurred as a result of the snow covered roads, and decreased visibility. Northern parts of Fulton County reported 1/2 inch of sleet, mixed with freezing rain. Further southeast, freezing rain late in the evening of the 25th into the early morning hours of the 26th produced 1/4 to 1/2 inch of ice in the counties between I-72 and I-70. The freezing rain changed to sleet, then snow before daybreak. Snowfall amounts ranging from 4 to 7 inches, with significant blowing and drifting, occurred along a line from Pana, through Monticello, to Danville.
