This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

So far this evening snowfall has been light with Chicago area amounts around  1/2 inch but with temperatures below freezing and the snow falling during rush hour, traffic on many area roads and expressways has slowed to a crawl.

Some snowfall totals ..

Arlington Heights 0.5 inches

Deerfield 0.5 inches

The snow has already ended at Rockford with 1.6 inches reported at WREX-TV . Marengo reported 1 inch of snow.

Motorists did their best to remain patient and get through it.

WGN’s Erik Rung has more.
