Yet another historic snowstorm for Chicago

Second record-breaking snowstorm in less than two weeks.

Winter storm watches or warnings have been issued for Boone, De Kalb, Ogle, Winnebago, Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, Lake and McHenry counties in Illinois, and for Kenosha, Racine and Walworth counties in Wisconsin.

Within the Winter Storm Watch area, there will be a swath of heavy snow with accumulations of 4 to 8 inches.

If O’Hare Airport sees more than 2.2 inches of snow from this system, says abcchicago.com, it will be the greatest snowfall on record this late in the season.

This follows the historic mid-April storm that dropped up to 8 inches of snow on parts of the Chicago area on April 14, when 5.4 inches of snow fell at O’Hare.

That was the area’s second biggest snow storm so late in the season, and the snowiest April 14 on record.
