NORTH CENTER — A Thursday morning snowstorm dropped more than an inch on parts of the city.

The storm was largely over as of 10:30 a.m., with the worst of it hitting the South Side, said Ricky Castro, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Midway Airport reported 1.1 inches of snow, and Castro said most areas probably had 1-2 inches of snow gather on non-paved surfaces like grass.

Snow only accumulated on those non-paved areas in most of the city, Castro said, though parts of the South Side had snow on the roadways.

More snow could be coming later in the day and this weekend, Castro said. Flurries and light snow are possible Thursday night, though the snowfall shouldn’t be significant enough to stick.

The next possible snowstorm could come Saturday. Don’t expect major snowfall, Castro said: He expects “at most, a few inches.”

Temperatures will hang around the mid-30s and low 40s for the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

More than an inch of snow fell Thursday morning.
