Snow In Chicago Comes Early This Year

Chicagoans hunkered down for a snowstorm Sunday evening. Forecasts predicted 7 to 11 inches of snow on the ground, and winds of up to 30 miles per hour.

The snow continued through Monday morning’s rush hour. Roads in downtown Chicago were relatively clear, but some of the surrounding counties were not so lucky Lake County residents woke up to nearly a foot of snow. On top of all that, more than 300,000 homes and businesses in the region lost power.

Jon Davis, a meteorologist with Risk Pulse, and Chicago’s Streets and Sanitation Commissioner John Tully, joined the Morning Shift to discuss the fallout of the storm, and what could be in store for the Chicago area this winter.
