Winter storm warning set for Tuesday
A winter storm warning is set to go into effect at 3 a.m. Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. A significant amount of snow is expected to fall early Tuesday morning and the warning is expected to be in effect throughout the day on Tuesday.
As much as eight inches of snow is forecast to fall.
According to the warning, "light snow is expected to spread across northeast Illinois tonight and become more intense toward daybreak Tuesday and persist through Tuesday evening." And according to the forecast, "the snow could be heavy at times."
New snow accumulation of four to eight inches is expected, and, with winds gusting as high as 25 mph, areas of blowing snow are likely. The warning advises that more than an inch of snow per hour might fall at times, "making snow removal difficult and travel extremely dangerous. This will impact both rush hours on Tuesday … with the higher potential for heavy snowfall during the late afternoon and early evening rush hour."
The forecast high in each of the next three days is 33 degrees.
