Saturday’s snowfall in the Chicagoland area has the potential to not only be a nuisance for those craving spring weather, but it could also be a record-setting weather event.

According to the National Weather Service, the last time Chicago saw at least 2 inches of snow this late in the spring was all the way back in 1910, when the area was hit with a late-spring snowfall on April 26.

That record could conceivably fall on Saturday, as some forecasts are calling for 3 or more inches of the white stuff to fall as a rain system transitions into snow during the late afternoon and early evening hours.

Areas further north of the city could potentially see even more, as a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for large portions of the region. McHenry, Lake, DeKalb, Kane, DuPage, and Cook counties will all be under the warnings, which will take effect in the late morning and early afternoon hours.

For all the latest snowfall totals, and the latest forecast, stay tuned to NBC Chicago and the NBC 5 Chicago app.
