Two to Five Inches of Snowfall Expected Overnight

The National Weather Service issued a winter advisory for the South Suburban area beginning tonight and extending into Monday afternoon.

A “well organized clipper system” is likely to deliver anywhere from two to five inches of snow atop the South Suburbs between the hours of 10 p.m. tonight and noon on Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

While northern areas like Rockford and Marengo are expected to be the heaviest hit, the South Suburban region may see increased snowfall if lake effects kick into gear.

Residents are warned to take caution while driving as snowfall may accumulate as fast as one inch per hour. The heaviest snowfall is expected to occur overnight, from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Amanda---Maybe you are not elderly or handicapped. If you want snow---move to Minnesota. It's difficult & dangerous to drive in or walk on.. We're extremely lucky to have a mild winter. PS: I cannot afford to move & have lived here for 62 years. Yes, it's pretty to look at, but difficult to get around in.
