Most snow since 2011 blizzard — and counting

Sometime late today or early Friday, it will stop snowing for the first time this new year. At least that’s what it will seem like.

The waves of snow that have steadily hit the Chicago area since New Year’s Eve have left behind more than a foot of snow in some places, mostly to the north and northwest. And a burst of lake-effect snow was expected to add several more inches before finally ending.

Many areas have not seen this much snow since the Ground Hog Day blizzard of 2011, according to the Chicago Weather Center.

Here are some of the latest snowfall totals from the Chicago Weather Center blog:

  • O’Hare International Airport – 9.2 inches
  • Midway Airport – 10.9 inches
  • Harwood Heights – 11.8 inches
  • Streamwood – 13.0 inches
  • Palatine – 15.0 inches
  • Homewood – 6.1 inches
  • Gardner – 2.8 inches
  • Morton Grove – 13.3 inches
  • Rockford – 6.7 inches
  • Evanston – 12.0 inches
  • Glen Ellyn – 10.8 inches
