Snow showers hit the north suburbs Thursday morning and it was an unwelcome sight for many in Gurnee.

While Chicagoans were all hoping the snow would stay away until after Thanksgiving, Mother Nature clearly had other plans.

The flurries drifted south and hit the city Thursday afternoon. The snow didn't stick, but it did serve as a reminder that winter is on the way.
