Chicago, IL – Travelers in the Chicagoland region face a challenging morning commute as the US National Weather Service Chicago Illinois forecasts up to three inches of slushy snow, primarily north of I-80 and west of the Fox River.

The advisory, issued early this morning, warns of reduced visibility coupled with gusty winds that could reach up to 40 mph, particularly affecting western and southwestern suburbs of the metro area. Motorists are advised to prepare for significantly longer travel times, exercise caution, and increase their following distance to ensure safety.

While the greatest potential for slush accumulation is targeted in the aforementioned regions, other areas are likely to experience a slushy coating on grassy surfaces. The weather conditions are expected to persist into the early afternoon, with the mix of rain and snow continuing beyond noon. This inclement weather pattern comes as an early April surprise for residents, who are encouraged to stay updated through local news channels and the National Weather Service for further advisories. As the day progresses, drivers and pedestrians alike are reminded to remain vigilant and prioritize safety amidst these spring snow conditions.
