Winter Storm information from the Village of Antioch
The latest information from the National Weather Service calls for dangerously cold temperatures starting this afternoon.
Actual snowfall totals are not what makes the anticipated blizzard concerning and potentially life-threatening, it is the frigid temperatures mixed with strong winds. This storm is expected to produce blizzard conditions due to blowing snow, and dangerously low wind chills, as low as 30 to 40 below zero.
The temperatures will cause issues with exposure in a matter of seconds, and also will impact travel. When temperatures drop this low, it impacts the effectiveness of salt on the roadways, which makes travel dangerous.
The Village of Antioch urges residents to avoid travel, outdoor exposure, and to only leave home between now and Saturday morning for urgent issues.
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.
