The heavy, wet snow fell heaviest north of Interstate 88. A winter weather advisory expired at noon in Cook and DuPage counties.

The snowfall came after a relatively warm weekend when temperatures reached the 60s on Saturday. Severe storms hit later that day, with gusts reaching at least 60 mph, knocking out power to tens of thousands of people.

The weather will be peaceful for the next few days, with temperatures reaching the 40s each day until another round of snow hits Thursday night and Friday, the weather service said.
