    Chicago Weather Forecast: Snow for Some

    Andy Avalos is tracking snow in the Chicago area.

    Amid a Winter Weather Advisory and with snow still falling, some parts of the Chicago area had already reported accumulating snowfall of up to 3 inches Thursday morning. 

    A Winter Weather Advisory was issued for several counties in the southern portion of the Chicago area and in northwest Indiana.

    The advisory was in effect for Kankakee, Ford, Livingston and Iroquois counties in Illinois, as well as Newton, Jasper and Benton counties in Indiana, according to the National Weather Service. It was expected to last through through 12 p.m CST.

    Light snow began developing in the southern portion of the region early morning, mixed with a little light sleet or freezing rain to start, and gradually moving north.

    The snow was expected to move north of the city to a line from Waukegan to DeKalb, but it appeared as though the areas along and south of I-80 were more favored for a longer period of snow. A band from Kankakee to Valparaiso, Indiana could bring as much as 1 to 3 inches of snow before clearing out around noon. Areas north will likely only see a dusting to half an inch.
