Snow Making A Comeback In Chicago

UPDATED 02/21/11 1:33 p.m.

CHICAGO (CBS) — If you were getting comfortable with temperatures in the 40s and 50s and rain being the only nuisance, a reminder is coming Monday that it’s still winter.

A winter weather advisory is now in effect for much of the Chicago area. CBS 2 Meteorologist Megan Glaros says the city and the northern suburbs could see 2 to 4 inches of accumulation.

The winter weather advisory covers Cook, DuPage, Lake, McHenry, Boone and Winnebago counties, as well as much of Wisconsin. It will remain in effect until 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The precipitation Monday will begin as rain, and will transition to snow as a low-pressure system pushes through and the temperature drops.

The snow is expected to be wet and slushy in consistency, making for a sloppy commute home.

The overnight low on Monday night will drop to 22 degrees, and on Tuesday, the high will be back in the wintry range at 29.

      Marc, you dump liberal puke. I believe she was attempting to make a joke. AND don’t believe everything you read, see, or hear from the liberals. It was proven over a year ago, that the “primary scientist” that came out and said global warming was happening, was a liar. He made it all up.

      Vicky… :) cute. lol

      Why are you so nasty when she was making a joke? You are so bitter you must be a very unhappy person. What a shame you take your shortcomings out on other people. Guess your mother didn’t raise you right or to treat others as you would like to be treated? You need to chill out, maybe go to Mexico on vacation or something? For someone trying to sound so smart, you certainly don’t know English and punctuation very well.

    typo, should be dumb not dump. Fingers ran away from me on the keyboard.

    • Yu No Mae

    Marc, what a shame that by constantly looking up, you fail to observe the creator rather than the created. The Global threat is not the weather, it is Liberalism and the Vast Liberal Lies it has produced.

    • Mr. Justice

      OOOOHHHH Good reply M.

  • A mom

    Oh my goodness – this is too hysterical NOT to comment…are you actually bringing politics into a report about the weather, M?! Too too funny. Hahahaha

    As for global warming, learn the facts before you comment (and, as for joking – intelligent humor is always funnier than misguided humor). Go back to basic science: yes, there are natural ebbs and flows in temperature throughout history. However, it is ignorant to think that the combination of the Industrial Revolution and mass deforestation will have no ill effects on the planet.

    Love the political comment…that was hysterical…go put some more kool-aide (or kook-aide) in your coffee and have a fabulous day!

      • Yu No Mae
