Live Weather Radar: Track The Winter Storm As it Sweeps Across Chicago, Indiana

NBCUniversal, Inc.

A winter storm warning remains in effect for the entire Chicago area and northwest Indiana through Saturday morning, with wind chills of nearly 40 degrees below zero and wind gusts in excess of 40 miles per hour.

While the snow has mostly tapered off across most of the metro area, it is expected to continue in parts of northwest Indiana, including Porter and LaPorte counties. In LaPorte County, a “travel warning” has been issued, with residents asked to stay off roads because of dangerous conditions.

Porter county is under a blizzard warning until Saturday at 6 a.m. According to the National Weather Service, total snow accumulation of six to 10 inches and winds gusting as high as 55 miles-per-hour are expected.

Treacherous travel conditions are expected to continue overnight across the entire region, with near-whiteout conditions expected as strengthened winds blow around snow and cause drifting and visibility issues on roadways.

The National Weather Service says that “near-blizzard conditions” can be expected, especially in open areas, and that threat is expected to continue after daybreak on Friday.
