    Some locations saw as much as 5 inches of snow by Wednesday morning, while others saw a mix of rain and snow as the system continued and temps began falling Wednesday. 

    A Winter Storm Warning was issued for McHenry County until noon Wednesday, warning of up to 7 inches of snow in addition to ice accumulations of up to one tenth of an inch.

    A Winter Weather Advisory remained in effect through 12 p.m. for DuPage, Cook, La Salle, Kendall, De Kalb, Kane and Lake counties in Illinois as well.
