    With more snow on the way to northern Illinois, a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for a pair of counties.

    The advisory will take effect in McHenry and Lake counties at 3 a.m. Sunday morning, and will last through 6 a.m. Monday morning as snow will fall across the area for much of the day.

    In LaSalle and DeKalb counties, the advisory will take effect at midnight Saturday night, and will last through midnight Sunday night. 

    According to the National Weather Service, between two and four inches of snow are expected to fall in the area, and some areas could see up to five inches as the system moves through.

    The snow, while not particularly heavy, will be consistent throughout the day, creating the potential for slippery travel conditions on area roadways.

    Areas south of the impacted counties can expect to see anywhere from one to three inches of snow, while areas south of Interstate 80 can expect to see an inch or more.

    A Winter Weather Advisory will also be in effect Sunday in southern Wisconsin, including Kenosha County.
