The National weather service has issued a winter weather advisory for most of the areas in Chicago for Monday.
Snow moved to the Chicago area once again on Monday. The advisory scheduled was in effect from Monday 3 pm in counties like Boone, DeKalb, McHenry, Kane, and Ogle.
Winter weather advisory scheduled from 6 pm was issued for DuPage, Cook and Lake Counties also. Both advisories expired at midnight.
Monday started with cold winds and clouds thickened as the day went by. The afternoon was overcast with rain in the evening. In the western areas, sleet and rain were experienced in many parts. In the east, the evening saw considerable snow.
According to the NWS warning, heavy snow descended during the early evening on Monday. The snowfall was at the rate of one inch per hour. In the suburban areas, the accumulation of snow was as high as 2 to 3 inches. In the northern parts, the snowfall rate was still higher.
The metro area had wet snow, which made evening commuting difficult due to slippery roads. The snow was reduced around midnight and there was no accumulation reported south of l-80. However, north of I-80 witnessed 1 to 2 inches of snow and far north experienced 2 to 4 inches of accumulation. On Tuesday, the weather will get better, though fog is expected.
