The National Weather Service Winter weather forecast Valid until 6 pm on Tuesdays in Chicago, Boon, Cook, Decalve, DuPage, Kane, Lake, Lee, McHenry, Ogle, and Winebago counties.
On Tuesday morning after commuting, snow began to move between the western suburbs and the city. ABC7 meteorologist Phil Schwarz says that the heaviest snow falls between 10 am and 3 pm, and when temperatures rise in the evening, precipitation turns into rain.
Approximately 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected, but it can melt as soon as the temperature rises. According to the National Weather Service, snowfall of up to 0.5 inches per hour is expected between noon and 3:00 pm. Drivers need to be careful as the roads are slippery.
Forecasts could end one of the longest sections the city has ever made without snow.
Chicago last saw measurable snow on March 15. For the first time in recorded history, Chicago spent the entire fall season without measurable snow.
Chicago’s record snowless stretch occurred in 2012, when Chicago spent 290 days without measurable snow. According to the National Weather Service, Chicago will need to achieve that until Friday to break that record.
