For the second season in a row, snowfall in the Chicago area has been below normal. But most suburbs and the north shore finally got some Friday, and that was great news for some snow-lovers. Emily Florez reports.
A "white Christmas" didn't work out so well for Chicago's downtown and South Side neighborhoods, so how about a snowy New Year's weekend instead.
Thursday's burst of lake-effect flurries gave way to a long weekend of area snow, starting with Evanston and continuing Friday morning across the city into Saturday.
By 10 a.m. Friday, Crown Point, Ind., picked up 1.3 inches of fresh snow, and according to NBC Chicago meteorologist Alicia Roman, accumulations in most Chicago locations were estimated to range from one to two inches, with a little less snow south.
The system is expected to move east through Friday night and produce lingering flurries and lake-effect snow showers on Saturday morning.
