Blizzard Warnings Continue For The Midwest
Blizzard conditions are in full swing across much of the midwest. Chicago is NOW included in the Blizzard Warning in effect for the next 12-24 hours.
Visibility levels are down to a quarter mile or less in some spots due to the prolonged winds gusting close to 30-40 mph creating white-out conditions.
Rain will change over to snow for Chicago late tonight into early Monday morning where approximately 8-12″ of snow is expected to accumulate very fast.
Winds will gust close to 45 mph for Chicago through Monday morning knocking visibility levels down to a 1/4 mile or less for your morning commute.
Conditions for Chicago will rapidly go down hill beginning this evening between 6 – 8 pm.
Conditions will not improve for Illinois until the afternoon hours on Monday as winds will remain strong even after the snow tapers off.
