Overnight snowfall ranged from 1 to 3 inches across the Chicago area and northeast Illinois with the most frequent reports indicating between 2 and 21/2 inches. When added on to the existing snow cover, in general snow depth around the area ranges for the most part between 2 and 3 inches.
The next “clipper” system moving from the northwest to the southeast is already snowing over the Dakotas. This system is not expected to be as strong as last night’s – probably arriving between 9PM and midnight tonight and passing out of the area before 6AM Sunday morning. It looks now like there will be a half inch or so new snow.
Next in line behind that system – another “clipper” will follow into our area Sunday evening and last longer into Monday morning – that system could drop several inches of new snow depending upon the exact path the center of the storm takes and will bear watching as it comes closer.
