Ice expected after snow turns to freezing drizzle during morning commute
About three inches of snow fell across the Chicago region, though the snow is expected to turn to freezing drizzle this morning, coating the area with ice.
The 2.7 inches at O’Hare International Airport tied the highest total for this year, according to the National Weather Service. Some flurries are still fallign so the total could tick upward by a tenth of an inch or two, he said.
Some of the snow in southern suburbs has already started turning to rain and might create a “light glaze” on the roadways, said Ben Deubelbeiss, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.
