SYCAMORE – Originally expected to last until noon, the snowfall that blanketed the area Monday continued into the evening commute, with the forecast calling for snow to continue overnight and possibly until noon Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
Across DeKalb County, Somonauk saw 5 inches of snow, DeKalb saw 4.6 inches and Genoa saw 4.2 inches.
Although the weather could have made for hazardous road conditions, in Sycamore, Assistant Fire Chief Todd Turner said they’d received no weather-related calls over the weekend and just one call Monday for a minor vehicle collision.
“We’ve just had routine-type calls, or ambulance calls,” he said.
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office said it responded to two calls on Perry Road that were caused by the weather, one at Route 23 and the other at Somonauk Road. Neither resulted in any injuries, Sgt. David Randa of the sheriff’s office said.
The National Weather Service said the area was would remain under an elevated cold risk through Wednesday because of the plunging temperatures.
