Over 3 inches of dry snow has fallen in Arlington Heights with tapering snowfall rates continuing this morning. Snowfall total may reach around 3.6 to 3.8 inches by 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.




According to the NWS Chicago, forecast trends look on track with snow ending across the western County Warning Area about daybreak and then across the eastern area by mid/late morning. Temperatures are warmer into the lower/mid 30s southwest of the surface low, which was in northwest Illinois around 3:00 a.m. and moved to northwest Indiana by 5:30 a.m. Most of northeast Illinois was in the low 20s and teens at 5:30 a.m. A Sunday mid-afternoon high of only 20°F is forecast for Arlington Heights.

The earlier warmer temps may have allowed roads to become wet and slushy, but the slush and surfaces are quickly freezing as much colder air returns to Chicagoland.




Some low drifting or blowing snow is possible, mainly across the northern County Warning Area where the snow remains drier. Confidence is low that blowing snow will be a serious issue because most snowfall will be complete before winds pick up. Wind gusts in the mid 20 mph range can be expected this morning, but will steadily diminish by early afternoon. Wind gusts of 20 to 24 MPH are forecast for 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Lake Effect Snow of up to 2-3 inches is possible in eastern Cook County and eastern Will County by noon. However 1-2 inches of Lake Effect Snow is the expectation in eastern Cook and Will counties. The Lake Effect Snow will transition to northwest Indiana, and is expected to end there about 5:00 p.m.

Weather Radar shows snow is is moving southeast and dissipating at 5:45 a.m. Most of Lake County and McHenry County were covered by the end and trailing edge of the radar image.
