February 1 2011 Insane northern Illinois blizzard with gale force winds ...

Still getting very intense snowfall here in DeKalb, with perhaps hints that it will be continuing into the morning. Check out the 850 mb uvv chart for 6 AM tomorrow morning. That suggests fairly heavy convective snow bands across northeast Illinois. Plows have already ceased in the area and the interstates have been shut down. Planning on waking shortly after sunrise in hopes of shooting some aftermath photos before things get disturbed.
