Multiple crashes reported as Winter Weather Advisory brings April snow to Chicago-area


CHICAGO — A Winter Weather Advisory (purple-shaded area on the highlighted map) for accumulating snow has been issued for Boone, McHenry and Lake Counties this Monday morning, as bands of moderate snow showers will continue to rotate out of Wisconsin across the northeast corner of Illinois – the Advisory will be in effect until 9AM CDT.

Temperatures in the mid to upper 20s have allowed accumulations of 1 to 2-inches and snow-covered/slick roads have developed in the Advisory area.  The most accumulation will be in the counties generally along and north of Interstate-90, but there will be at least a dusting of snow with spotty slick spots in areas a little farther south along and north of Interstates-88/290.

So prepare for a slowed commute Monday morning, due to the late-season snow showers. Temperatures should warm into mid and upper 30s, melting much of the snow, so that travel conditions will improve significantly later this Monday morning.
