Chicago poised to break another snow record

Snow that fell across the Chicago area Saturday afternoon and evening amounted to eight-tenths of an inch or less, and most locations reported less than one-half inch. The city’s official weather observation station at O’Hare International Airport logged four tenths of an inch of snow, thereby bringing the season’s snowfall total to a meager 1.3 inches (versus the normal season-to-date snow total of 11.2 inches).
Sunday will be Chicago’s 317th consecutive day since the city last had a snowfall of at least one inch — the second longest on record. The all-time record, 319 consecutive days set in 1940, is in jeopardy because no additional snow expected through the current seven-day forecast cycle.
Computer models disagree somewhat, but the balance of evidence suggests the city’s next significant precipitation event will be rain on Thursday,
