Southern Illinois snowstorm

Southern Illinois experienced freezing rain, sleet, and snow on December 6-7, 2013.  Here are some maps showing snowfall totals – both from the NWS. For some locations, this winter storm produced a season’s worth of snowfall in the course of a few days. The largest snowfall total I have seen so far is 13.0 inches at Waltonville, IL (Jefferson County). Other heavy snowfall totals include 12.6 inches at Chester, and 11.5 inches at Lawrenceville and St. Francisville. ridge2 snow
