Part of the Chicago area will remain under a Winter Storm Warning over the weekend, with several inches of snow possible for some suburbs.
The watch began Friday night and will continue throughout Saturday afternoon for LaSalle and Livingston counties in Illinois and Newton and Jasper counties in northwest Indiana.
Anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow will be possible with the system far south and west of the city, but several factors will likely limit accumulation north of Interstate 80. Those factors include the potential for a strong easterly wind, which would feed in dry air, and temperatures at or above freezing.
Currently, temperatures are expected to be in the mid-30s along the lakefront, making way for a possible rain-snow mix as the precipitation moves through.
The main band of precipitation was expected to develop Friday night and into Saturday morning.
The snow and rain could make for hazardous travel conditions across the area.
The system will likely move out by Saturday afternoon, making way for a mostly sunny and cool Sunday.
