Dangerous wind chills across Chicago area as snow moves east

Weather

CHICAGO — As the accumulating snow moves off to the east, skies will gradually clear from the west overnight, allowing temperatures to fall quickly over the fresh snow cover. Winds will be light, 5 to 10 mph, but when combined with temperatures 5 to 10 below, areas to the west of Chicago will experience dangerous wind chills in the -20 to -30-degree range during the early morning hours Tuesday.

A Wind Chill Advisory and Warning will be in effect for that area, outlined in the pictorial below prepared by the Chicago National Weather Service.

Greatest snowfall totals from Monday’s weather system occurred in counties along the I-80 and I-88/290 corridors into Chicago where generally 2 to 4-inch+ fell. Snowfall totals tapered off to the north and south.
