Winter Storm Warning – Snow/Ice Removal Procedures
February 17, 2022 2:30 PM

Another round of severe winter weather is beginning throughout Central Illinois. This latest winter storm system will start with mixed precipitation, including initial light ice accumulation, followed by 4 to 7 inches of snow for Champaign County.

This afternoon, rapidly deteriorating weather conditions will immediately create slippery sidewalks, pathways, parking lots, and roads. Also, the projected timing of snow bands and high winds will likely cause low visibility and hazardous travel, especially throughout the evening commute hours. 

Facilities & Services staff will begin snow and ice removal operations once the precipitation changeover happens. The combination of freezing temperatures and blowing and drifting snow later tonight is expected to worsen many campus areas and could significantly reduce the effectiveness of initial clearing activities into Friday.

Please use caution when traveling on campus while the storm is active and as long as extreme temperatures are causing persistent areas of snow and ice. More information about these F&S snow and ice removal procedures, including a list of priority parking lot locations, is available at

If you have questions or to report areas needing service throughout the winter weather event, contact the F&S Service Office, 217-333-0340.
