Latest Snow To Make Snowiest Winter in 30 Years, Snow Emergencies Expected


This weekend’s snow won’t only break a 30 year record for the snowiest winter in Springfield---it will also make for some travel headaches.

 

Before the first snow flake fell Saturday, the City of Springfield declared a snow emergency beginning Sunday at midnight.  That lasts until Tuesday morning.

 

The Sangamon County Office of Emergency Management says they anticipate declaring a Level 2 snow emergency with rural roads expected to be covered by drifting snow.

 

As for the amounts of snow, currently the city received 42.3 inches of snow this winter and with estimates of 7 inches, that will surpass the record of 45.2 inches set in 1982.
