First snow since December 24

Chicago got its first measurable snowfall since December 24th last night. As of 6 am CST/12:00 UTC, we have the following reports from area weather stations:

Station Snow
O'Hare 127 mm (6 in.)
Midway 102 mm (4 in.)
Milwaukee 127 mm (6 in.)
Rockford 127 mm (6 in.)

Sadly for cross-country skiiers, today's forecast calls for temperatures around 3°C (37°F), which is just warm enough to turn the snow into a heavy, soupy mess but not enough to ski along the lake.

Speaking of heavy, soupy, messy snow, I will now go shovel.
