City preps for snowy and cold morning commute
A Winter Weather Advisory in effect for much of the Chicago Metro area from midnight to 10am Wednesday.
Snow will overspread northern Illinois from the west and northwest overnight reaching the Chicago between 4am-8am just in time to play havoc with the Wednesday morning commute. While snow totals will not be excessive with general 1-3 inch, locally 4 inch totals expected, the combination of the falling snow, gusty winds and temperatures near 20 will create slippery driving conditions.
The snow should exit the area by mid or late morning followed by strong west-northwest and falling temperatures.
