SANDSTONE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Snow is pushing into northern Indiana and parts of Michigan after dumping more than a foot on Chicago's northern suburbs.

National Weather Service meteorologist Amy Seeley says Boone and McHenry counties and adjacent areas of Wisconsin had the highest storm totals as of 8 a.m. Saturday, with 14.6 inches reported in Capron, which is about 60 miles northwest of Chicago. Woodstock had 12.5 inches and Roscoe recorded 11.7 inches.

Seeley says it's not often the Chicago area's first snowfall of the season dumps more than six inches of snow.

Chicago's O'Hare International Airport had 5.4 inches as of 6 a.m.

Flight- tracking website FlightAware.com showed Saturday morning that about 250 flights in and out of Chicago's O'Hare International Airport had been canceled. The airport had 4 inches of snow early Saturday.

Midway International Airport, which is in the southeast part of Chicago, only had about 100 departing and arriving flights that had been canceled by Saturday morning.

Storm warnings and advisories have been issued throughout northern Indiana and Michigan's Lower Peninsula.
