Winter Storm Saturn was expected to dump 6-10 inches of snow across northern Illinois.
Update, 11:20 p.m.: Here's a look at more snowfall totals. Editor's Note: I wanted to note that not all towns have totals on the National Weather Service website.

A winter storm warning is now in effect for both counties until 6 a.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service in Chicago.

Snowfall amounts in excess of 4 or 5 inches have already been reported across northern Illinois.
