    Winter Storm!? Jan 12-13th, 2019

    I see your point. I might guess that for coordination purposes to mesh with other offices they went with warnings.

    Winter Storm!? Jan 12-13th, 2019

    WSW criteria are 6 inches in 12 hours OR 8 inches in 24 hours. My point and click shows the main activity (6.2") over an 18 hour period with the highest 12 hour total 3.8". It doesn't meet either requirement. A random click in Peoria shows a similar result.

    April 18th-19th Winter Storm

    Would you like a Severe T-Storm with your WSW?
  7. While the lists are hosted on UofI they were actually going through NIU and maintained by Gilbert Sebenste for the original owner Chris Novy. When NIU weather was shut down last Friday, the lists were stopped as well. However, just this afternoon I started getting 'wx-storm' messages again sent through College of DuPage. I have no idea who picked it up there (I bet Gilbert had something to do with it) but I am glad to see them back.
