Light to occasionally moderate snow will continue through the evening commute and impact travel. Snow totals up to around one inch, to locally up to two inches near Interstate 90, are expected by the end of the evening commute. A band of moderate to heavy snow just to the south may clip the southern portions of McHenry and Lake Counties up until about 6 PM. Due to the cold air temperatures, road treatments will be less effective. Drivers can expect to encounter slippery road conditions into this evening, along with visibility occasionally under one mile. Leave extra travel time. Reduce speed and increasing following distance when driving on snow covered roads. Stay tuned for the latest updates and possible issuance of a Winter Weather Advisory.
