Winter storm warnings in the area have expired, but a round of lake-effect snow could hit the region on Wednesday morning, dropping up to 2 inches of additional snow.

According to the National Weather Service, the snow showers are expected to develop over Lake County in Indiana, then could park themselves for several hours over portions of Cook and Will counties on Wednesday morning.

Moderate-to-heavy snow is possible with the snow showers, which could potentially cause travel issues in the morning hours.

Brisk northerly winds could also accompany the snow, causing blowing snow and reducing visibility in the region.
