The winds are expected to move back to normal levels later this afternoon, and temperatures are expected to climb back to 10 degrees. However, the lingering winds will make temperatures feel like it's still zero degrees.

Between 6-inches to 12-inches of new snow hit the ground during the storm last night, according to the Community Collaborative Rain Hail and Snow Network, which handles snow totals in the country.

O'Hare International Airport reportedly received 6-inches of snow overnight, while Palatine reported 11-inches of snow overnight. Roselle also picked up about 6-inches, while Mundelein recorded about 7-inches overnight,

The snow is causing longer than normal commutes into and out of the city, and people should give themselves extra time when heading to work this morning.

Metra is reporting on their website that, because of the hazardous weather outlook, some train delays could take place this morning.
