Winter Storm Watch
Well, get ready Chicago. Another winter storm is heading our way, just on the heels of the weekend snow “event.”
A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the Chicago area, with a forecast that is calling for up to nine inches of snow to fall in some locations.
The Chicago area will get a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow over the weekend, although exactly what type of precipitation various areas will get is still unclear.
Chicago could get another 3 to 6 inches of snow on Tuesday.
According to CBS 2′s Ed Curran, the storm will create freezing rain that will create a coating of ice that could amount to one to two tenths of an inch.
The snow-less streak is about to end for the Chicago area.
CBS 2 Meteorologists Megan Glaros and Steve Baskerville report a winter storm watch and a winter weather advisory for all Chicago area counties from Thursday evening until Friday morning.
Thursday’s brutal cold temperatures were expected to usher in as many as eight inches of snow Friday for some areas.
Enjoy the last day of spring in January Wednesday, because within 24 hours, a powerful snowstorm will be clobbering the Chicago area – and it could make for a dangerous commute.
It won’t be anything like this past Sunday, but you should still wash the road salt stains off your boots, because more snow is coming our way.
Blustery winds have hit the area and snow continues to fall Sunday, as severe winter weather moving across the Midwest is wreaking havoc for travelers at Chicago’s airports.
If you haven’t tuned up the snow blower, purchased the salt or picked out your Christmas tree, you had better do it now.
