Half inch of snow expected in Chicago, other parts of state see up to 1 foot
March 25, 2013
The Chicago area and the collar counties may see up to a half inch of snow throughout the day Monday, but the brunt of the early-Spring snow will hit hardest in Central and Southern parts of Illinois, according to National Weather Service forecasts.
“The heart of the winter storm is done, what we have going on for Chicago the rest of today is the potential for lake effect showers and flurries,” said Matt Friedlein, a meteorologist with the weather service.
The snow is expected to clear out of the Chicago area by about 7 p.m. Monday.
The Bloomington-Normal and Champaign-Urbana areas have reported between 7 and 12 inches of snow accumulation, Friedlein said.
