Chicago, IL – Residents in the Kankakee area are advised to prepare for hazardous weather conditions as a burst of snow is expected later this evening. 

According to the National Weather Service in Chicago, there’s a 30-45% chance of snowfall south of I-80, which could lead to slick and hazardous travel conditions by early Wednesday morning. The advisory highlights the potential for a narrow swath of slick travel areas, primarily impacting evening commuters and those traveling overnight.

The weather alert extends beyond tonight’s snow chances, with precipitation returning Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Forecasts indicate that slushy snow accumulations are possible, mainly north of I-88 and near the IL/WI state line. The impending weather system is part of a larger trend of colder temperatures moving in later this week.

Friday and Saturday are set to see a significant drop in temperatures, with conditions turning colder and additional chances for snow. This cold snap brings with it the threat of wind chills reaching as low as 0 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit on Friday night. Residents are urged to stay informed on the latest weather updates and prepare for the cold, as well as the possibility of more snow, which could affect road conditions and travel safety throughout the region.
