0.5" 2019

0.7" snow fell after midnight to early morning November 1, 1954.  None of it occurred on Halloween as surface maps show the snow in Illinois at 11 p.m. on October 31 & moving eastward.

2.0" fell October 30, 1925

0.5" fell October 30, 1917

From November 2, 6:30 p.m. to November 3, 6:30 a.m. in 1899, the Purdue University observation site (at the original Ag Experiment station on the campus) saw a steady snow accumulation 5.7".

However, parts of the viewing area saw 8".

Final Halloween 2019 snowfall reports:

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Lows this morning dropped to 21-28.

12 of the last 20 days have had daily peak wind gusts that have exceeded 30 mph here at WLFI.

It appears that the next 7 days may feature gusts of at least 30 mph every single day!

It will cloud up with time this evening & a period of gusty winds +30 mph (wind chills drop to mid 20s for a while) & a few spotty rain/snow showers are possible overnight.  No accumulation will occur. 

Lows will drop to 32-34.

With lots of clouds tomorrow & some sun poking through at times, spotty rain, graupal & snow showers/squalls will pass through. 

With southwest to west winds at 20-30 mph, highs will run 37-43 with wind chills in the 32-40 range. 

Very brief dusting of snow or graupal on a few grassy areas is possible before melting rapidly.

Some clearing should occur tomorrow night with winds decreasing.  Lows of 25-30 are likely.

With lots of clouds, a few isolated showers/sprinkles are possible Sunday.  Winds will be gusty from the south-southwest to southwest to 36 mph with highs 45-52.

Note how it stays windy from the southwest through Sunday night as deepening surface low reaches Minnesota.

Also note the rising heights, indicating that temperatures may actually rise after dropping to 40-45.

After a warmer, windy Monday, Tuesday looks mild with some pm scattered showers & isolated storms, followed by a cool, blustery Wednesday.

Thursday looks windy with some showers & isolated thunder, which may end as some snow showers &/or flurries (as temperatures fall quickly).  A few flurries & snow showers are possible Friday with windy conditions & much colder temperatures.
