Definitely don't expect a white Christmas in Chicagoland this year...in fact this is the least amount of snow Chicago has seen in 112 years!
Despite experiencing a handful of flurries over the last month, Chicago has still not recorded its first measurable snowfall. ‘Measurable snowfall’ is at least one-tenth of an inch in a single day which, as of yet, Chicago is yet to see this season.
According to National Weather Service, the previous latest first measurable snow on record was December 20th set back in 2012. After yesterday’s absence of snow, the 2021-22 season has surpassed that record and it means that this year will have the latest first measurable snowfall since records began in 1909.
