A touch of winter in October

By NORTHWEST HERALD, Thursday, October 12, 2006 7:27 PM CDT

Winter touched down early this morning in McHenry County, as swirling snow and wintry skies gave residents their first taste of the cold months to come.

O’Hare International Airport measured 0.3 inches of snow, breaking a record from 1989 for earliest measurable snowfall.
Nathan Marsili, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said the area may see more snow flurries this afternoon and temperatures in the 40s and 50s through Saturday. By Sunday, temperatures should reach the upper 50s, he said.
