RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS WILL INCREASE IN COVERAGE THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON. A MORE FOCUSED BAND OF SNOW IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP LATE
THIS AFTERNOON AND PERSIST INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS. THIS BAND
MAY PRODUCE FAIRLY INTENSE SNOWFALL FOR A SHORT TIME WITH
VISIBILITY POTENTIALLY FALLING TO AROUND A MILE OR SO. THE MAIN
AREAS EXPECTED TO BE AFFECTED ARE ALONG AND SOUTH OF A LINE FROM
CHICAGO TO MENDOTA WITH THE BULK OF THE SNOW FALLING DURING THE
EVENING COMMUTE ACROSS THE CHICAGO AREA. ACCUMULATIONS AROUND AN
INCH WILL BE POSSIBLE...MAINLY ON GRASSY AND ELEVATED SURFACES BUT
SOME SLUSHY ACCUMULATION MAY OCCUR ON ROADWAYS. BE PREPARED FOR
LONGER COMMUTE TIMES AND THE POTENTIAL FOR SLUSHY ROADS.
