climo is what it is on this side of the lake, but this is a sneaky area on the north shore around glenview/evanston that seems to do well with these setups,

Chicago crowd, is this typical lake effect fluff? We had an airy dusting here and it was likr the fluff they get in Buffalo or marquette when 18" falls and the depth is 8" the next day lol.

It’s fluff.

The 6.4” at MDW as of 6AM was off of 0.27” liquid.

About 2 miles 

My brother was here for Thanksgiving when we had quite a bit of snow that weekend...then when he got back to Chicago he was pissed there was no snow all Christmas season. Now he is in his usual january spring mode and he gets lake effect on top of cold and snowcover lol.

2nd week of February looks cold, likely a less severe version of what occurred the second week of February last year.   Good chance that some very cold air sneaks into the southern plains.  After that the SE ridge starts to flex a bit more again.
