Mother Nature did not disappoint for the first snow of the season. And it's not even 'officially' winter yet! Snowfall totals from Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois ranged from 3" to 9". Why such a big range? A heavy snow band set up south of Rockford and was maximized on either side of I-88. Most of the higher snow reports I've seen so far have been from Dixon, Amboy, Rochelle and DeKalb. There, anywhere from 7" to 9" of snow fell.
Thankfully the snowfall has ended with only a few flurries east of Rockford. Skies are beginning to clear west of the Mississippi River. And with the recent snow and south winds, look for fog to develop and last through Monday morning.
