Rockford Scanner™: NWS: Several bouts of severe winter weather are likely over the next week

NWS:
Several bouts of severe winter weather are likely over the next week. First up, the period of dangerously cold weather tonight through Friday night. The most severe cold will be later tonight through mid Friday morning when wind chills of 20 to 30 below zero are likely.

A fast moving weather system will then bring light snow accumulations Friday afternoon and evening, which due to the cold temps could make for a very difficult commute.

Next, we are watching a storm system which will likely bring accumulating snow to the region Sunday night into Monday. Significant snowfall amounts of 6″+ are possible in at least portions of the area.

Finally, early indications are that another bout of dangerous cold is coming the middle of next week. In fact, it is possible that the region could see some of the coldest temperatures observed in years, that may even surpass the brutal cold snap of early January 2014.

Rockford Scanner™: Shout Out To The LPPD Officers & Christopher Lobdell

Rockford Scanner wants to send a shout out to these officers and the citizen.

From the LPPD:

A police officer never knows what their next call will be. It could be a call that puts them in harm’s way, or it could be something a little more heartwarming…

We would like to give a shout out to two of our officers and to an area resident, Christopher Lobdell. While conducting school zone patrols in front of Maple School, Officer’s Eric Jacobson and Jordan Hayes noticed that sidewalks were not shoveled from the previous snow storm and school children were walking in the street to get to the cross walk.

The officers gathered up some shovels and started to clear the sidewalk around the cross walk so the school kids would not have to walk in the street to get to the crosswalk. That’s when a resident, Christopher Lobdell, drove by and saw the officers shoveling the snow. Christopher drove home, got his snow blower and returned to the school zone. After the trio finished the job, the officers decided they were going to run down to Windsor School to clear the snow around the crosswalk there.

And after loading the snow blower back into his vehicle, Christopher followed the officers to Windsor School, where he helped clear the snow from the sidewalk and the entrance to the crosswalk, so the kids would have safer access to the crosswalk.

To this trio, we thank you for caring about your Community.

And by the way, when we learned about their morning activity, we had to coax the officers into posing for the photo.

On Thursday, January 24, 2019, shortly after 2:00 p.m., Rockford Police officers responded to the intersection of West State Street and Pierpont Avenue for a two-vehicle crash.

Upon arrival, officers learned a red car, traveling southbound on Pierpont Avenue, ran a red light.

The car then collided with a burgundy minivan, traveling eastbound on West State Street.

The driver of the car, a 24-year-old female, and two adult male occupants of the minivan were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

It is believed at this time that alcohol likely played a role in the accident.


It happened around 2:10 pm today near the area of W State and Pierpont.

There is an auto accident near this location.

A vehicle is on fire and someone is trapped inside the vehicle.

Several emergency personnel are en route.
