Winter among the snowiest ever in central Ill.

Posted: Updated:

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - The snow is piling up across central Illinois and so far ranks among the 10 snowiest winters on record in many cities.

The National Weather Service says Tuscola's 34.6 inches is already the third for snowfall in the eastern Illinois town's history. Peoria's 35.8 inches of snow ranks fourth all time for that city. And Springfield's winter has moved up to Mo. 5 on the capital's Top 10 list at 34.2 inches.

Bit Jim Angel of the Illinois Water Survey tells The News-Gazette that Champaign's snowfall total isn't there yet.

The 32.8 inches of snow qualifies as the 16th biggest snowfall total in that town's recorded history.

Angel says another 6 inches would tie the 10th snowiest winter in the town's history. That was back 1911 and '12.
