UPDATES WITH DETAILS, SNOW PLOWS DEPLOYED

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory starting Monday morning, with up to 6 inches of snow expected across the Chicago area.

Snow could begin falling just after midnight Sunday and continue through Monday evening, the weather service forecasted. Between 3 and 6 inches of snow were expected in Lake, DuPage and Cook counties. Visibility will be reduced during periods of heavy snowfall and could make for difficult driving conditions.

“The intensity of the snow will vary from time to time until tomorrow morning,” said Gino Izzi, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “It seems pretty likely we’ll be experiencing snow during rush hour, so I would plan on a longer than usual commute.”

Izzi said this will be the first time Chicago has recorded at least one inch of snow since Dec. 17, 2016, marking the city’s longest streak without snow ever recorded during the winter.

Lake effect snow could then develop Monday evening and continue overnight into Tuesday, adding to snowfall accumulations, the weather service said. Lake effect snow could continue periodically throughout Tuesday.

Temperatures were expected to reach a high of about 30 degrees on Monday, the weather service said. The chance of snow was about 100 percent on Monday, with wind gusts as high as 20 mph. A high near 27 degrees was expected Tuesday, with an 80 percent chance of snow.

The winter weather advisory will be in effect from 1 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, followed by a lake effect snow watch into Tuesday afternoon.

The city’s Department of Streets and Sanitation announced it will deploy 287 snow plows overnight to tackle the snowy weather. the plows will focus on salting and plowing arterial routes to ensure the roads are safe before moving to neighborhood streets if necessary.

As of 11:35 p.m. Sunday, 46 flights were canceled at O’Hare International Airport and 12 were canceled at Midway International Airport, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation.

While Chicago braced for its first snowfall in months, larger snowstorms were expected on the East Coast. A blizzard watch was issued for the Boston area, with 12 to 18 inches of snow expected to fall over eastern Massachusetts as well as central and southern Rhode Island, according to the weather service.

Bitter cold temps to continue through Monday in Chicago

(CHICAGO) As Chicago creeps toward minus 13 degrees early Monday, some people will be rooting for a record: Come on, mercury! Drop!

“Some people would say if you’re going to get this cold, you might as well set a record doing it,” National Weather Service Meteorologist Gino Izzo said Sunday night.

“Minus 14 is Chicago’s record for December 19. It was set back in 1983. We’ll probably fall just a hair short of that,” Izzo said.

Expect wind chills between minus 15 and minus 30 early Monday.

“Some people are having fun with the cold by throwing hot water into the air and watching it vaporize before hitting the ground,” Izzo said.

Temperatures should rise into the single digits Monday afternoon and continue to rise into more seasonable norms throughout the week, with highs in the 30s and lows in the teens.

WEATHER – Patchy Fog in the Morning, Cloudy Skies in the Afternoon. High 36F.

High winds to batter Chicago area Wednesday

(CHICAGO) Wind gusts up to nearly 60 mph could cause travel problems or property damage throughout the Chicago area Wednesday.

A high wind warning is in effect from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. throughout Chicago and the northern and western suburbs, according to the National Weather Service. Sustained west wind speeds will be at least 40 mph, with gusts up to 58 mph or more.

The weather service said the impact of Wednesday’s winds could be comparable to the storm that hit the region Feb. 19, damaging trees and buildings and causing widespread power outages. Lightweight outdoor objects should be secured or brought indoors to prevent property damage.

High winds can also make travel difficult throughout the day Wednesday, especially for high-profile vehicles on north-to-south oriented roads, the weather service said.
