  1. You can really see how impressive the depth, longevity and widespread the snow cover was in 79.
  2. Rockford IL set a new record low for the day, dropping to at least -10° this morning & breaking the old record of -8° in 1916.
  3. Mostly sleet and rain here, with some flakes thrown in.
  4. Returns in Pontiac look good. Obs say it’s all snow, for now.
  5. Looking toward 311 South Wacker and “Willis Tower.” Traffic nightmare.
  6. That was a total bust here. They should've left are expectations low. haha.
  7. Raining, 38 degrees here and just had some thunder and lightning.
  8. CPC has much of the sub at or below normal, with above normal precipitation in the 8-14 day period. Haven’t seen that in a minute.
  9. If memory serves me correct, the November 2013 outbreak had 10 tornadoes in the LOT area, with 3 of those being EF2s. Definitely a rare event for November.
  10. Yep. When you look at the top 30 and bottom 30 total seasonal snowfall for Chicago, 7 of the snowiest seasons occurred during the 2000s and 3 from the 2000s were the least snowiest.
  11. The winter of 1991-92 (Dec-Feb) ended up sucking in Chicago. Above normal temps and only 14.5 inches of snow.
  12. Main roads were wet all day. Secondary roads were slushy. Snow didn’t stop the boat tours. Haha.
  13. Snow cover during the 2014 outbreak.
