Winter Storm Warning information from the Village of Antioch
With the forecasted severe weather expected to arrive later this week, the Village of Antioch is advising residents to take precautions before the arrival of the storm.
A winter storm warning is in effect for Antioch and the entire Lake County region beginning at 12 noon tomorrow, Thursday, December 22nd, and remains in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday, December 24th.
Snow and blowing snow, with winds gusting as high as 50 mph, are expected to produce occasional whiteout conditions and extremely cold temperatures with wind chills of 25 to 35 degrees below zero. Total snow accumulations are expected to be between 2 to 5 inches. The cold and wind are what will make this storm severe.
The Village of Antioch asks residents to keep parked cars off of ANY public roadway. Parking is not allowed on any street in the Village after snowfall exceeds one inch (1″) in thickness). Parked cars impede the ability of snowplows to do their job. Please help us in our snow removal efforts by removing any parked vehicles from roadways.
Also, please make sure that children do not play in the snow or build snow forts close to roadways. This creates a dangerous situation with passing snowplow trucks.
During the blizzard, please do not go out if you don’t have to. Travel conditions on Friday and Saturday are expected to be very hazardous.
With the anticipated severe weather, the Antioch Village Hall will be closed on Friday, December 23, 2022. Village Hall will also be closed on Monday, December 26, 2022, in observance of the Christmas holiday. Antioch Village Hall is expected to reopen on Tuesday, December 27, 2022, at 8 a.m.
