The Winter Weather Advisory will expire at midnight and snowfall totals will probably range from 1 to 3-inches across the area north of Interstate-80, with the heavier amounts in those counties adjacent to the Illinois/Wisconsin state line.

I addition to the reports below, Freeport west of Rockford reported 2.5-inches of snow, DeKalb reported an inch on the ground and Lincolnwood in Cook County reported a half-inch covering the ground.

The Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until midnight tonight (purple-shaded area on map below). Wet snow continues north of Interstate-80 in northeast Illinois this evening with temperatures right at 32-degrees accumulations of 1 to 2-inches have caused slushy/slick spots on highway and local streets/sidewalks resulting in hazardous travel conditions. Scattered rain showers are occurring south of Interstate-80. There could be some remnant drizzle, but for all practical purposes the wet snow/rain will have moved east of Chicago by midnight.
