Can’t remember a January with this much, practically non-stop snowfall? There’s a good reason for that, Chicago.
Though just less than a half inch of snow fell at O’Hare Thursday afternoon, it was enough to make January 2014 the third snowiest on the books in the city’s history, the Chicago Tribune reports. Since 1884, only two other Januarys — 1918’s 42.5 inches of snow and 1979’s 40.4 inches — saw more of the white stuff than this year’s 33.5 inches.
Making matters worse, another wave of snow is expected to start Friday. National Weather Service meteorologists told NBC Chicago light snow will begin Friday afternoon and grow heavier early Saturday, continuing through to early Saturday evening.
