...ACCUMULATING SNOW MONDAY MORNING...

SNOW IS LIKELY TO BEGIN LATE TONIGHT AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
MONDAY MORNING. A PERIOD OF MODERATE TO POSSIBLY BRIEFLY HEAVY
SNOWFALL RATES IS BECOMING MORE LIKELY FOR THE REGION DURING THE
MONDAY MORNING COMMUTE. EVEN WITH MILD PAVEMENT
TEMPERATURES...THESE SNOWFALL RATES WILL LIKELY LEAD TO
ACCUMULATIONS ESPECIALLY ON UNTREATED SURFACES.

THERE REMAINS UNCERTAINTY ON HOW WIDESPREAD AND LONG LASTING THESE
SNOWFALL RATES WILL BE DURING MONDAY MORNING. SOME LOCATIONS IN
NORTHERN ILLINOIS THAT RESIDE UNDER THESE MORE APPRECIABLE RATES
WILL LIKELY RECEIVE OVER TWO INCHES OF ACCUMULATION...WITH OTHER
AREAS LESS THAN THAT.

THOSE TRAVELING MONDAY MORNING...INCLUDING DURING THE MORNING
COMMUTE HOURS...ACROSS NORTHERN ILLINOIS AND FAR NORTHWEST
INDIANA SHOULD PREPARE FOR POTENTIAL SLOWER COMMUTE TIMES...AS
WELL AS POSSIBLE HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS.
