severe weather is not expected, however, conditions are such that
a brief tornado or a bit of hail cannot be ruled out this
afternoon, mainly west of the Fox River.

Rain showers will change to snow showers tonight, mainly after
midnight. There is a chance of some heavier snow showers
developing north of I-88 and I-290, which if they develop could
drop a quick inch or two of slushy accumulation.
