Arlington Heights has about 11 inches of snow cover on the ground, and a forecast for new snow shows a potential accumulation of 2.7″ to 3.0″ from midnight Saturday/Sunday to 11 AM Sunday. There is some uncertainty about this snow system — specifically that it may start snowing earlier than midnight and may involve deeper accumulation that may activate a Winter Weather Advisory.
Snow will be dry and fluffy and easy shoveling. Winds will be blowing 5-9 MPH from the north-northeast during the snow system tonight and Sunday morning.
From overnight a period of very light snow to light snow is still ongoing (Saturday 12:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. …) and of 12:15 p.m. dropped a varying amount in Arlington Heights from 0.5″ to 1.0″ — less than the potential 1.5″ that was in the forecast from 12 AM to 6 AM Saturday.

According to my trustee elementary school wooden ruler, right off Michigan Ave in #Chicago, 6.75” of #snow has fallen. @weatherchannel continues live coverage of winter storm #Mateo all afternoon/evening. From time to time I’ll be measuring how the snow continues to pile up. ❄️ pic.twitter.com/KqRUXApQ46
