December 20th Snow and Wind Reports

The first widespread accumulating snow of the season fell on Thursday afternoon and evening.  Locations north of I-70 saw some accumulation, with areas northwest of a Champaign to Springfield line seeing the most substantial totals of 1 to 3 inches.  Highest amounts occurred across Knox and Stark counties where 4 to 5 inches fell.  Northwest winds gusting 40-60 mph created blizzard conditions and treacherous travel for parts of the area. Numerous traffic accidents were reported due to the winter weather. The higher gusts also brought down tree limbs causing scattered power outages.
