Jan. 28 Snow Totals: Algonquin Again Leads Kane County

Jan. 28 Snow Totals: Algonquin Again Leads Kane County

Algonquin got 6 inches of snow in the wee hours of Monday, Jan. 28, and leads the league for Kane County 24-hour snow totals.

Those totals are taken by National Weather Service spotters at various locations, generally around 7 a.m.

This particular Algonquin location is actually in McHenry County, so if you want to be a stickler (or if you’re from Elgin and want bragging rights), the city in the suburbs scored 5.5 inches, which was tops among the communities with “Kane” in parentheses.

Aurora, perhaps surprisingly because it’s on the southern portion of Kane County, was third with 5.0 inches.

Waukegan led the region, with 7.3 inches, followed by Gurnee with 7.0.
