A snowstorm predicted for Thursday afternoon and evening didn't materialize, but you should still be waking up to some white, winter scenery Friday.
The first wave of the suburban storm materialized farther north than expected, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service said late Thursday night. As a result, towns far north and northwest of Chicago got measurable snow Thursday, but most neighborhoods just got rain or rain mixed with snow.
A second wave was expected to hit the entire Chicago area after midnight, meteorologists said.
Instead of the 4- to 7-inch snowfall that was predicted, we should now expect 2 to 6 inches of snow.
The snow was expected to affect ComEd electricity service, according to a news release from Lincolnshire officials.
Anyone who sees a downed power line should call ComEd at (800) 334-7661 and report the location.
ComEd crews are being held over for storm duty, according to the news release.
