The first day of spring is behind us, but that’s not stopping Mother Nature from slinging another round of snow at an already winter-weary Chicago.

Residents will only see between a half-inch and one inch of snow in all by the morning commute, according to the National Weather Service.

This winter already ranks as the third-snowiest 12-month period in Chicago history, the Sun-Times previously reported.

Even though spring has already begun, this would by no means be the latest snow has lingered into the year.

The latest measurable snowfall on record in Chicago happened May 11, 1966, according to weather service meteorologist Ben Deubelbeiss. And the latest snowstorm bringing an inch or more of the white stuff happened May 3, 1907.

Temperatures, too, will be unseasonable, with highs in the upper 20s Tuesday; the average high this time of year is 50 degrees.
