Snow Totals & A Look Back

The snow has come to an end. Yes, we will still see some snow floating through the air today, but as far as the accumulating snow we are done.

How much snow did we pick up? Here is a look at reports sent in to the National Weather Service around the area.

  • Red Bud, IL 4.1"
  • Mt. Vernon, IL 4"
  • Plumfield, IL 3"

  • Sharon, TN 1"
  • Union City, TN 1"
  • Cape Girardeau, MO 0.9"
