Recapping Today’s Record-Breaking Snow

Merry Halloween? We’ve seen White Christmases before, but this is the first time Peoria has seen a White Halloween.

Here is a look at my forecast from last night. It called for the highest totals along and west of the Illinois River with slightly lower totals east of the Illinois River.

While the forecast wasn’t perfect, this map did verify pretty well.

Here is a look at some of today’s snowfall observations, including some of the highest totals.

Williamsfield – 5.0″ (forecast – 2-4″)

Toulon – 4.5″ (forecast – 2-4″)

Morton – 4.5″ (forecast – 1-3″)
