Jan 4-5th Snowfall

Here's a map showing snowfall amounts across IL and nearby states from Saturday night through Sunday Jan 4-5th, 2014.  Between 6 and 12 inches of snow fell across central and southeast IL with the highest amounts along the I-70 corridor.  The precipitation started as rain along and southeast of a Flora to Robinson line Sunday morning hence reducing the snowfall amounts there. Strong winds caused considerable blowing and drifting snow with near blizzard conditions with white out conditions at times Sunday afternoon into Monday Jan 5-6th with snow drifts as high as 3 to 6 feet and even locally 6-8 feet in rural areas.  Wind chills dropped to 30-45 below zero across central IL Sunday night into Monday as air temperatures stayed below zero. A wind chill warning is in effect across Illinois until Noon today as wind chill indices range from 20 below to 35 below zero.
