Lake-effect system dumps nearly 8 inches of snow on Chicago

(CHICAGO) After two days of pummeling by a lake-effect system, nearly 8 inches of snow had piled up in Chicago by Tuesday evening.

A lake-effect snow warning remains in effect until 10 a.m. Wednesday in northwest Indiana, which could see up to a foot of snow in parts of Porter County, according to the National Weather Service.

As of 7 p.m. Tuesday, 7.7 inches of snow was measured at O’Hare International Airport dating back to Sunday night, forecasters said. At Midway International Airport, 7.3 inches were recorded. Most of that snow fell from Monday night into Tuesday morning.

Some northern suburbs in Lake County including Waukegan and Zion saw more than a foot of snow, while about 8 inches were measured in southwest suburban Oak Lawn. The lake-effect system had mostly moved out of the Chicago area by 5 p.m.

As the snow settled, 920 flights were canceled at O’Hare as of 8:45 p.m. Tuesday. Seventy-one were grounded at Midway, with minimal delays at both airports.

Wednesday is expected to be clear and sunny with a high of 28 degrees, before temperatures return to the 30s and 40s late in the week, forecasters said. There is a slight chance of snow on Thursday night before a rainy Friday morning.

WEATHER – Sunshine and clouds mixed. A few flurries are possible. Breezy and cold. High 32F.

Open Letter as a Reminder to Shovel Your Sidewalk from Alderman Joe Moore

Dear Neighbor,

Winter certainly came early this year, with both snow and bitter cold. So it’s time remind everyone that city ordinance requires homeowners and business owners to shovel the sidewalks adjacent to their property.  Not only is it the neighborly thing to do, but failure to do so can result in a fine of up to $500.

And though it’s bitter cold now, the temperature is forecast to get near the freezing mark Friday and Saturday. If you haven’t shoveled yet, those are good days to get out there and get it done.

We all need to do our part.  I always shovel the walk in front of my home and make sure the snow is cleared in front of the 49th Ward Service Office.

If you know of a property where the sidewalk is not shoveled within 24 hours after a snowfall ends, contact my office at ward49@cityofchicago.org or call 773-338-5796 and provide us with the address of the property.

We’ll issue a warning and subsequently a ticket, if necessary.

Of course, I realize some people are not physically able to shovel snow.  If you are 60 years of age or older and/or have a physical disability and lack access to available resources (financial resources or local family/friends), you are eligible to sign up for the Chicago Snow Corps.

The Snow Corps is a City referral program that uses 311 to connect volunteers willing to shovel snow with people who are in need of assistance.  Simply call 311 and ask to be placed on the program list.

Please note there is no guarantee by requesting volunteer snow shoveling that you will receive assistance.  This program is based on the number of volunteers who sign up.

Visit the city sign-up page to volunteer to shovel the sidewalk of a senior citizen or disabled neighbor.If you can afford to pay someone to shovel your walk, my office has a list of people willing to shovel your walk for a reasonable charge.  Please reply to this e-mail or call 773-338-5796 and we will provide you with their contact information.

In addition to the Snow Corps program, the City now has a real-time “Plow Tracker” map that allows residents to monitor the progress of the City’s snow plows during major snow cleanup efforts.

Thanks in advance for being a good neighbor and keeping our neighborhood walkable in the winter.

Sincerely,

Joe Moore

10 inches of snow possible as lake-effect system moves in

(CHICAGO) Mother Nature is making a mid-March push to turn an unseasonably warm, dry winter in Chicago into something a little more seasonable.

Up to 10 inches of snow could pile up by midday Tuesday as a lake-effect snow system that started Monday night moves through the Chicago area, according to the National Weather Service. The lake-effect warning is in effect until 4 p.m. Tuesday in Cook, DuPage and Lake counties.

Chicago’s 287 snow plows hit the streets Monday night, clearing main arteries before heading to residential blocks, according to the city’s Dept. of Streets and Sanitation. Residents can monitor the snow plow fleet in real time on the city’s website.

The lake-effect band had accumulated 1.8 inches of snow at O’Hare International Airport by 1 a.m. Tuesday, bringing this winter’s snowfall total to about 22.7 inches, forecasters said.

That number is well below the seasonal average of 32.2 inches, which could be within striking distance if the lake-effect system packs its full punch.

The lake-effect band that started between 7 and 8 p.m. Monday in the northern suburbs had dropped 8.5 inches in Waukegan by early Tuesday, NWS meteorologist Casey Sullivan said. That band moved into northern Cook County by 4:45 a.m., and another band was expected to form somewhere in the area later in the morning.

Between 5 and 10 inches are expected, with especially “intense” snowfall overnight — up to 2 inches per hour in the most directly hit areas — making for a nightmarish morning commute, forecasters said. But because lake-effect bands are only about 10 to 15 miles wide, snow totals can greatly vary over short distances.

Slick road conditions Monday night were thought to be the culprit of two separate chain-reaction crashes, involving a total of 35 vehicles, in the inbound express lanes of Interstate 90/94 between North Avenue and Division Street. Seven people were taken to the hospital with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, while 23 people refused medical attention.

As of 4:50 a.m. Tuesday, 340 flights had been canceled at O’Hare, and 65 were grounded at Midway International Airport, according to the city’s Department of Aviation. Delays at both airports were averaging less than 15 minutes.

In the months of January and February, not an inch of snow accumulation was recorded in Chicago — a first in recorded history. Before Monday, the last snowfall greater than an inch during this unseasonably warm winter occurred on Dec. 17 when 1.7 inches accumulated in Chicago.

While Chicago braced for its first snowfall in months, larger snowstorms were expected on the East Coast. A blizzard watch was issued for the Boston area, with 12 to 18 inches of snow expected to fall over eastern Massachusetts as well as central and southern Rhode Island, according to the weather service.

Today Can Kill You, So Just Stay Home

From the International Business Times, various things are happening after the annual time change in March.

Studies have found that sleep-deprived humans are likely to have more irritability and mood swings.

April 2016 showed that there was a significant increase of about 6 percent in the number of car crashes after time change than before.

Another 2016 study on the risks of stroke during daylight saving time discovered that the rate of stroke increased by 8 percent within two days of the time change. During this time, cancer victims were 25 percent more susceptible to have a stroke and people over the age of 65 years were 20 percent more prone to strokes than others.

Now add to this the many inches of snow blanketing the Chicago area, it might be ideal to just stay home in bed all day. Roughly 100 people in America die shoveling snow each year.

A study looking at data from 1990 to 2006 by researchers at the US Nationwide Children’s Hospital recorded 1,647 fatalities from cardiac-related injuries associated with shovelling snow. In Canada, these deaths make the news every winter.

UPDATES WITH DETAILS, SNOW PLOWS DEPLOYED

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory starting Monday morning, with up to 6 inches of snow expected across the Chicago area.

Snow could begin falling just after midnight Sunday and continue through Monday evening, the weather service forecasted. Between 3 and 6 inches of snow were expected in Lake, DuPage and Cook counties. Visibility will be reduced during periods of heavy snowfall and could make for difficult driving conditions.

“The intensity of the snow will vary from time to time until tomorrow morning,” said Gino Izzi, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “It seems pretty likely we’ll be experiencing snow during rush hour, so I would plan on a longer than usual commute.”

Izzi said this will be the first time Chicago has recorded at least one inch of snow since Dec. 17, 2016, marking the city’s longest streak without snow ever recorded during the winter.

Lake effect snow could then develop Monday evening and continue overnight into Tuesday, adding to snowfall accumulations, the weather service said. Lake effect snow could continue periodically throughout Tuesday.

Temperatures were expected to reach a high of about 30 degrees on Monday, the weather service said. The chance of snow was about 100 percent on Monday, with wind gusts as high as 20 mph. A high near 27 degrees was expected Tuesday, with an 80 percent chance of snow.

The winter weather advisory will be in effect from 1 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, followed by a lake effect snow watch into Tuesday afternoon.

The city’s Department of Streets and Sanitation announced it will deploy 287 snow plows overnight to tackle the snowy weather. the plows will focus on salting and plowing arterial routes to ensure the roads are safe before moving to neighborhood streets if necessary.

As of 11:35 p.m. Sunday, 46 flights were canceled at O’Hare International Airport and 12 were canceled at Midway International Airport, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation.

While Chicago braced for its first snowfall in months, larger snowstorms were expected on the East Coast. A blizzard watch was issued for the Boston area, with 12 to 18 inches of snow expected to fall over eastern Massachusetts as well as central and southern Rhode Island, according to the weather service.

Crashes close I-55 in Channahon

(CHANNAHON) Lanes of I-55 were closed in both directions Wednesday morning after at least two crashes in southwest suburban Channahon.

One crash, which involved eight to 10 cars, happened at 5:49 a.m. near Arsenal Road, according to Illinois State Police.

Police said a separate crash happened about that same time in the northbound lanes of I-55 near the bridge over the Des Plaines River.

No injuries were reported as of 7:30 a.m., but all three southbound lanes were closed to traffic and traffic on the northbound side was only getting by on the shoulder, police said. Further details were not immediately available.

Snow was forecasted in areas south of I-80 through 9 a.m. Tuesday. The Illinois Department of Transportation warned drivers to be cautious of snow or ice-covered roads in the area throughout the morning commute.

City deploys salt spreaders as forecasters warn of freezing rain

(CHICAGO) The Department of Streets and Sanitation has deployed 210 trucks to salt the city’s main streets and Lake Shore Drive early Thursday as forecasters warn of freezing rain across the Chicago area.

Authorities are hoping to prevent icy conditions for the morning rush while the National Weather Service put a freezing rain advisory into effect until 9 a.m. Thursday.

Freezing rain or drizzle could cause ice accumulations of up to a tenth to an inch in Cook, Lake, McHenry, DuPage, Kane and DeKalb counties, among others, the advisory said. Motorists were urged to be prepared for slippery roads and slow down, using caution while driving.

The city’s salt spreaders would first focus on salting arterial routes, then move to neighborhood streets, if necessary.

Thursday is expected to be mostly cloudy, with a 60 precent chance of rain and a high of 31 degrees, according to the weather service. There is a chance of snow between 9 a.m. and noon, but less than half an inch of snowfall was expected.
