Rare visitor to Chicago this winter is coming: Snow

Chicago Weather Snow could make morning commute messy Monday

The National Weather Service has warned areas hit by the lake effect snow could get 1-2 inches of snow per hour, and that band of snow will move southeast during the day.

Lake effect snow could add 5 to 8 inches to earlier forecast amounts, the warning says.

Wolf puts National Guard, travel limits in place for snow storm
Road crews are preparing for the worst as a blizzard is expected to hit the region tonight and continue until Tuesday afternoon. The National Guard followed up to make sure that if anything happened they could help. "We're prepared for whatever comes".

The National Weather Service has issued a Lake Effect Snow Warning, which it said will remain in effect until at least 4:00 p.m. this afternoon. High drive times are being reported across the board, as well as a number of accidents. The last time the city saw measurable accumulations was on December 17, but this morning's dusting is just a precursor to an even larger winter storm expected overnight on Monday and lasting into Tuesday morning. The snow may be heavy.

Follow the snow progression on the Current Metro Weather Radar Mosaic below. Snow totals can vary significantly over short distances based on lake effect snow.

Buhari returns to Nigeria after London treatment
Before Buhari left, he handed over powers of the presidency to Yemi Osinbajo , making the vice president the acting president. Those awaiting his arrival were not sure of the time he was expected, and few were not even sure where the plane would land.

Portions of Lake and Porter counties are likely to see four to eight inches of snow. Travel is strongly discouraged. The wind has been NNE, so the wind off the lake has been bringing the lake-effect bands in SE Wisconsin, NE Illinois and also off Lake Huron into E. MI.

In the months of January and February, not an inch of snow accumulation was recorded in Chicago - a first in recorded history.

The advisory in La Porte County is in effect from 9 p.m. Tuesday until 9 a.m. Wednesday. Lake Effect Snow can cause hazardous conditions for Small Craft. The snow will be dry inland and possibly wetter closer to Lake Michigan.
