Weather Almanac for January 26th

Weather Almanac For 1/26

This Day In Weather History

1994 - 1/4 to 1/2 inches of freezing rain and sleet coated the northern half of Illinois.  Temperatures moderated a bit by the next day, but heavy rain fell on top of the ice in and near Chicago.  This resulted in flooding of streets and basements.  Up to 60,000 customers in the Chicago area were without power due to the storm, some for several days. 

2009 - A major winter storm started on this date and lasted through the 28th.  On the northern edge, 8 to 12 inches of snow fell from Shelbyville to Paris, with 6 to 10 inches common southward across most of the remainder of Illinois.  Near the Ohio River, ice accumulation totaled up to an inch with local amounts close to two inches.
