Snow won’t be tapering off there until tomorrow afternoon. Temperatures are borderline it is a heavy wet snow that is falling and Winter Storm Warnings are posted for not only Chicago but for Milwaukee and much of the southern half of Wisconson into Northern Illinois. Not bad for a storm that has no gulf moisture to work with. Dynamics plus cold air and a wind off Lake Michigan seem to be doing the trick quite nicely.
