unnamed-1

Happy Spring?

Light snow had folks in the Chicago area feeling winter-like on Wednesday despite spring starting over a month ago. While the snowfall was light and no significant accumulations were recorded, it had many in the Windy City feeling unusually chilly on a late April morning.

According to the Illinois State Police, roads weren’t impacted by the quick shot of snow during Wednesday’s morning commute. However, in northern Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota, snow accumulated to as much as nearly 10 inches in spots.

Chicago has seen snow as late as June, but typically Chicago’s final snowfall is around now, with the average final snowfall of the year typically occurring on April 20th, according to the National Weather Service’s Chicago office.

While no more snow is in the forecast for the Windy City, temperatures will be on the chilly side, struggling to hit 50º through the weekend with light rain possible on Saturday. Bundle up!
