Winter Storm Warnings and Advisories across the Chicago area continue in effect until noon today.

Snowfall is slowly diminishing here as the center of low pressure has already tracked up the Ohio River valley into southwestern Pennsylvania.

Snowfall reports are rolling in early this morning – it looks like totals will range from 2 to 3 inches along the Illinois-Wisconsin border to 5 to 7 inches south of Interstate-80. Chicago’s official observation site at O’Hare had recorded 5 inches so far at 6AM with Midway closing in on 4 and a half inches. Across central Illinois snowfall totals are running 6 to 9-inches.

There will still be a few bands of moderate snow this morning – especially to the south and east of Chicago and along the Lake Michigan shoreline where the northeast winds gusting over 25 miles per hour will boost totals somewhat.

Some snowfall reports as of 6AM CST:

Location             snowfall (inches)

Midway Airport            4.3

O’Hare Airport             5.0

Coal City, Grundy Co 4.3

Rockford, Winn Co     2.5
