Light snow after midnight but second round on its way

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

A check of the weather radar at 7:30 pm CST shows the band of snow has stayed pretty close along and north of Interstates-88 and 290 this evening. The back edge of this initial burst of snow rests near Interstate-39 between DeKalb and Rockford. Movement of the snow area is east and if it continues on it’s current trend should be mostly east of Chicago by midnight.

After midnight, the new year will start with some very light snow or flurries until Wednesday forenoon when another burst of snow from the northwest could combine with a potential meso-low pressure area forecast to develop over southern Lake Michigan – building another significant round of accumulating snow that could last much of the day Wednesday – with lake-effect snow continuing Wednesday night into Thursday.
