One snow down.  One to go.

Friday evening’s snow left a blanket across Chicagoland.

Flights were delayed and cancelled at both Chicago airports.


Snow tapered off by 10 p.m. but the will rev up again later Saturday.

From the Chicago Weather Center:

By early Saturday, forecast moisture profiles suggest a layer of dry air aloft will have overspread the area, leading to a lull in precipitation. Cloudy, damp air in lower levels of the atmosphere may produce spotty freezing drizzle, as temperatures hover near 30 degrees. The low pressure center is forecast to pass south of the area midday Saturday, causing winds to increase from the northwest. As readings plummet during the afternoon and evening, a period of wind-driven snow is expected to bring 2 to 4 inches of accumulation area-wide.

Sunday will see another Wind Chill Advisory.  It begins at 6 a.m. Sunday and last through Monday at 10 a.m.

Dangerous wind chill values, strong winds and subzero temperatures will result in wind chills of 20 to 30 below zero  through Monday morning.

Chicago-area drivers coped with the third snow storm in as many weeks.  WGN's Dana Rebik has more:
