Helping the odds will be both a system moving through the area as well as the potential for lake effect snow along the shoreline, Petr said. Since the city’s official weather recording location is at O’Hare International Airport, farther inland than lake effect snow often pushes, however, it is not a foregone conclusion. During the most recent snowfall, for example, Evanston had more than 18 inches of snow while Chicago’s official tally was 7.5 inches, despite the greatest total snowfall, a whopping 18.6 inches, occurring in the West Ridge neighborhood.
