Winter storms are expected to drop 8-12 inches of snow in some parts of the Chicago area

CHICAGO – Several counties across the Chicago area are under winter storm warnings and advice until Tuesday as heavy snow is expected to tear through parts of northeastern Illinois and northwestern Indiana.

A winter storm and winter weather warning (pink and purple shaded areas on the map respectively) will be in effect for the next 24 to 36 hours.

The heaviest “system” of snow on the order of 4 to 8 inches will be mainly east of I-57 and I-294, and it will decrease westward over our area with amounts from 1 to 3 inches well west of Fox River Valley. The lake-effect snow cities will greatly affect counties along the shores of Lake Michigan, where additional 3 to 6 inches of snow may fall (see image below prepared by the Chicago National Weather Service).

Heavy snowfall is expected to move in during Monday night commuting and continue until Tuesday.

Parts of Cook County are estimated to receive between 8 and 12 inches of snow by Tuesday.

Dangerous chills in the -15 to -25 degrees range continue Monday morning with a Wind Chill Advisory that applies to the entire area. The very cold Arctic air mass centered over southern Canada and the northern plains will continue to dominate here with single-digit peaks during the day and zero to below zero at night. If bundled from the outside, protect bare skin from frostbite that can develop within minutes.

Low visibility and cluttered conditions are reported across highways. Take it slow if you have to travel and give extra time. Currently, the worst of it is on the roads of northwest Indiana.
