Chicago hit with biggest storm since Groundhog Day Blizzard

Chicago’s biggest storm since the Groundhog Day Blizzard is starting to wind down.

Visibility in the area is starting to improve, a sign that the steady moderate to heavy snow is beginning to transition into light snow.

As the snow starts to wind down, winds are increasing and the snow is blowing and drifting.

Additional accumulation from 7 p.m. to Midnight is expected to be in the 1″ to 3″ range.   This will push storm totals to 6″ to 10″ with a few isolated 11″ or 12″ reports possible.
