Commuters will have to use extra caution late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, as snow is expected to develop, especially in the southern suburbs.
According to current forecast models, snow is expected to begin developing overnight, with areas like Will and Kankakee County likely impacted by a weather system. Untreated roads and surfaces could see slick spots due to cold temperatures and winds, according to forecast models.
Heavy accumulation isn’t expected, with one-to-two inches possible in some locations.
The snow will continue to work its way through the area Wednesday, and as winds begin to shift off of Lake Michigan, lake-effect snow is possible in areas to the west and southwest of the lake on Wednesday evening.
That snow will slowly work its way into northwest Indiana as the winds continue to turn, and that region will likely see snow well into Thursday, according to current forecast models.
Temperatures are expected to climb into the 40s by Friday, while another quick-hitting system could potentially arrive on Saturday.
