Light snow moving through Chicago area

A weak weather system continues to slowly move through the Midwest this Friday morning resulting in light snow.  Around an inch of accumulation is expected in northern Illinois with up to 2″ in a few locations by Saturday morning.

A 1” accumulation at O’Hare Friday would end a 307-day run without an inch of snow; this year’s 1” snow drought is the longest such spell in 54 years

Not since 1958 has a longer string of days without a single 1” snow accumulation occurred in Chicago than this year’s 307 days. The 1958 streak ended up running 315 days.
