The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for snow and blowing snow...which is in effect from 3 PM Monday to midnight CST Monday night.
* Timing...Monday afternoon through Monday night.
* Snow accumulations...3 to 5 inches. Locally higher totals along and north of a Harvard to Waukegan line.
* Winds...west winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts nearing 40 mph.
* Impact...as temperatures drop below freezing roads may become snow covered and slippery...especially during the afternoon and evening. Blowing snow will also cause reduced visibilities especially on north/south roadways later Monday into Monday evening.
A Winter Weather Advisory for snow and blowing snow means that visibilities will be limited due to a combination of falling and blowing snow. Use caution when traveling...especially in open areas.
