The snow topped out at 4.2 inches in Greenwood, McHenry County; 3.2 inches in DeKalb, 3 inches in Lakewood and Mendota, 2.8 inches in North Aurora, 2.5 inches in Roselle, and 2 inches in Bolingbrook.

Milder air to the south cut into the system. Areas well south of I-80 were from the Winter Weather Advisory early.

Chicago officially tallied its first measurable snowfall of the season, after setting a record for the latest date for snow.

At 12:10 p.m. Chicago O’Hare picked up the first 0.1″ of an inch of snow this season. Today, Dec. 28, 2021, now stands as the latest date for the first measurable snow in Chicago on record.
