We knew it was coming.
But now it is official.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 2 AM TO 10 AM TUESDAY * WHAT...Wet snow expected. Total snow accumulations of up to two to three inches. * WHERE...Portions of north central and northeast Illinois, including parts of the far west and northwest Chicago suburbs. * WHEN...From 2 AM to 10 AM CST Tuesday. * IMPACTS...Plan on slippery and slushy road conditions on some roads. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning commute. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Visibilities will be reduced to under a mile in the heavier snow. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Slow down and use caution while traveling
*Prepare for snow to impact travel during Tuesday’s morning commute, especially in interior northern Illinois. Allow for extra travel time.*
Though some areas had light snow accumulations back in late October, late tonight through Tuesday morning will have the first widespread 1”+ snow of the season for portions of the area. The snow will come down at a moderate to even briefly heavy clip during the Tuesday morning commute, which will cause travel impacts and delays due to low visibility and slush on some roads.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 2am to 10am CST for Kane, McHenry, DeKalb, Winnebago, Boone, Ogle, and Lee Counties. Higher travel impacts are expected in the advisory area due to slightly colder temperatures which should allow for snow to accumulate on more roads, along with the period of poor visibility from the heavier snow rates.
The snow will change to rain from southwest to northeast from the mid to late morning through early afternoon.
