“The most significant March snowstorm in several years” is how the National Weather Service in Chicago is describing the storm we are bracing for here in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. We’re looking at 7 to 10 inches of snow, even heavier in some areas, developing late tonight and continuing through Tuesday.
A winter storm is making its way across northern Illinois. A Winter Weather Advisory has been extended until midnight for northern Illinois. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for McHenry and Lake Counties, where 6 to 10 inches of snow are expected overnight. Forecasters say strong winds will also make travel difficult at times. As a result, some schools, colleges, and businesses are closed today.
