This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Another round of wintry precipitation is forecast to move through the region today and some slick roadways can be expected.

A tightly wound clipper-like system will bring a chance of wintry precipitation across Chicagoland starting in the mid-morning hours and lasting until the early afternoon. Snowfall accumulations of ½ to 1 inch are possible with this system.  While the best chance for precip will come around midday a lingering chance of snow showers will continue into the evening.

Colder air will start to move back into the region this afternoon.  Breezy west/southwest winds will make it feel colder than forecasted highs in the mid to upper 30s.  The chance of snow ends tonight as breezy conditions continue.  Overnight low in the mid-teens will feel more like 0 to -5 degrees.

We’ll stay cold Wednesday.  Despite decreasing clouds, temperatures are only expected to top out near 20 degrees.   A renewed chance for snow showers returns Thursday and Friday.
