Record snowfall in Chicago

Beats record set 96 years ago, in 1923.

The 0.9 inches of snow that fell at Chicago’s official observing site on O’Hare International Airport set a new record for Chicago for October 30th – the old record of 0.7-inch was set back in 1923.

The 1.0 inch reported at Midway also set a new record for this date.

Snow continued falling across a good portion of the Chicago area this morning with a Winter Weather Advisory calling for 1 to 4-inches of total snow accumulation across DuPage, LaSalle, Kendall, Grundy, Will, Kane and Cook Counties. cdt/

  1. We don’t have snow on maui so the solar minimum must be fake. I will check again in the morning for snow. We are at 400 foot elevation.

  2. First it was never snowed measurably in Chicago. Then it was it had snowed a trace. Normally they might have admitted it snowed in the suburbs at some point in the past, the city was too warm or something. Eventually, it got to, snow is right on schedule, in fact it’s snowed 6 times. It is VERY early.
