Snow is expected to break out over portions of northern Illinois and northern Indiana this afternoon as an upper level disturbance, or jet streak, moves from the Plains into the Ohio Valley. Forecast techniques coupled with the latest computer model guidance suggest that the majority of the snow will pass just to the south of Chicago. The best chance of accumulation will reside between Interstate 80 and Interstate 74. North of Interstate 80, flurries are possible with little or no accumulation.
Where the snow does occur, accumulations will range from one to five inches. Slick travel conditions are expected to develop by late afternoon over a 30-50 mile stretch of I-55, I-57 and I-65 As of 11AM, no advisories, watches or warnings have been issued by the National Weather Service in association with the afternoon & evening snow.
