Share post:

Chicago, IL – A formidable winter storm barrels towards the Windy City, threatening to paralyze the region with rapid snow accumulation and bone-chilling temperatures. 

The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued an urgent forecast highlighting snowfall rates that could exceed 2 inches per hour, targeting areas primarily north of I-80. Morning commuters are warned of treacherous conditions that are set to deteriorate by the hour.

The afternoon commute won’t fare much better, with the onslaught of snow transitioning to a sleet and rain mix near the lakefront, adding to the peril on the roads. As night falls, a full return to heavy snow, combined with gusting winds, will lead to near-zero visibility and perilous travel conditions. 

Officials are urging residents to postpone travel plans and hunker down as the storm intensifies, followed by a deep freeze set to send temperatures plummeting to potentially record-breaking lows.
