Still a foot on the ground at Waukegan this Wednesday morning – other snow depth reports across the Chicago area

The Lake-effect snow has long since ended and in the process of packing-down and melting Chicago area-wide, however close-in along and a few miles inland of the Lake Michigan shoreline a half foot or more still rests on the ground. The Chicago National Weather Service Forecast Office reports that the 7.7-inch total snowfall March 12-14 was the greatest in March since 9.2-inches back on March 5, 2013. The 6-inches on the ground at Chicago’s official O’Hare International Airport site yesterday morning was the latest 1/2-foot on the ground in March since that same date back in 1999.
