Wind, Blowing Snow Could Make For Difficult Driving
Statement as of 7:24 AM EST on February 19, 2013
Expires 12:00 PM EST on February 19, 2013
… Snow and blowing snow to continue until late this morning…
Snow continues to fall over northern Illinois and northwestern
Indiana following the passage of a strong cold front. West winds
gusting as high as 40 mph will cause periods of blowing snow which
may reduce visibility to under 1 mile at times. While the strong
winds should prevent much accumulation… patches of snow may stick
to untreated Road surfaces causing slippery driving conditions.
The strong winds may also cause travel problems for high profile
vehicles… especially on north to south oriented roads.
Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destinations.
