"After a very slow start to the season, Chicago has now seen four consecutive days of measurable snowfall," says weather.com meteorologist Nick Wiltgen.
A clipper system is moving through the Great Lakes region Monday, Feb. 4 bringing a couple of inches to the Windy City. While it's no major snowstorm, it is bringing a taste of winter to Chicago.
"The amounts have been modest, but with more clipper systems in the forecast this week, Chicago's 2012-13 snow total may manage to creep above the 9.8 inches measured in 1920-21, which is the lowest single-season snowfall total on record for the Windy City," says Wiltgen.
