Widespread snowfall totals about an inch this morning over northeast Illinois and the Chicago area into northwest Indiana

 

The band of snow that covered the Chicago area early this morning is moving east out of the region, and most snow here will be over with well before noon. Amounts vary slightly, but were pretty uniform for the most part ranging from a half inch in a few locations to nearly an inch at most observing points.

The low pressure center will be tracking east across Lake Superior today. Southerly winds this morning will be slowly shifting to the southwest and finally west and northwest later this afternoon. Clearing skies and diminishing winds over the fresh snow cover will allow overnight temperatures to drop into the single digits giving zero to 5 below wind chills early Saturday morning.
