Another few inches will be added today to 2020-21’s snowfall total, most of which has accumulated within the first three weeks of February.
Snow spreads into the region from west to east Sunday afternoon, between 3-6 pm east of I-39, and is expected to end around Midnight. The period for heaviest snowfall will occur between 3-8 pm before snowfall rates diminish as the system exits the area. Snow may mix with or change to rain south of I-80.
Average accumulation of 2-3″ can be expected for most of the Chicagoland area, with 3-4″ forecast for Northwest Illinois, including the Rockford area, and slightly less snowfall of 1-2″ south of I-80.
Snowfall totals for February shouldn’t increase too much during its final week, as we finally break out of the active cold and snow weather pattern that has gripped Chicago for its first three weeks with milder temperatures and dryer conditions beginning on Monday.
Even without today`s expected snowfall, Midway Airport, which received an astonishing 18″ early last week, has already broken records for snowiest February on record since observations began there in 1928.
