O’FALLON – The local area was hit with a massive snowstorm beginning Friday afternoon and continuing off and on until Sunday. By Saturday morning, more than eight and a half inches of heavy, wet snow had fallen on O’Fallon. Storm crews began working early Friday pre-treating roads and worked to plow roads all through the night, ensuring that main roads were clear and usable on Saturday morning.

Another winter storm is predicted to hit the metro-east area this Friday and possibly continue until end of day Saturday. The O’Fallon Weekly will have updates on this weekend’s weather on its Facebook page and website,, as the situation becomes more clear.
