Winter weather is not over for the Chicago area.
A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued from 6 pm. Thursday to 10 a.m. Friday for Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake and McHenry counties.
The system approaching is going to be a lot like last week in that it will have the rain/snow line move through our region. Snow fall totals will vary greatly across the area and there should be a sharp cutoff between neighborhoods with higher total and lower totals.
So far it looks as if the southern parts of the viewing area would most likely see rain for part of the day Thursday. Areas north of Chicago will likely see all snow and therefor higher amounts.
Precipitation should arrive around lunchtime Thursday, be at its heaviest Thursday night and exit the area Friday morning. Commute times should be extremely show Thursday evening and Friday morning.

These may not be the last wintry systems we see. The pattern remains an active one through next week with a succession of weather systems indicated by modeling as likely to cross the Midwest.
