About this Article

It's late, but it's here. Snow is starting to fall at both O'Hare International Airport and the western suburbs, as what is expected to be the largest snowstorm of the year descends upon the Chicago area. The National Weather Service pushed back the start and end times of the winter storm advisory. Now, the advisory runs from 9 a.m. until midnight Wednesday. Meteorologists believe up to 10-inches of snow is possible before the snowstorm moves out of the area.
