Snowfall Totals for Chicago Suburbs

As much as 18 inches reportedly fell in Gurnee during Chicago's most-recent snowstorm, which is the most recorded throughout the suburbs, according to the National Weather Service.

The snowstorm that started New Year's Eve and continued through today is being hailed as the largest to hit the area since the the Ground Hog Day blizzard of 2011, according to the Chicago Weather Center blog.

A wind chill advisory will take effect for much of the area from 9 p.m. Thursday through 10 a.m. Friday with temperatures between -8 to -18 expected and wind chill values between -15 and -25 degrees.
