More Lake Effect Likely This Morning

Share this post

Just before 9am (CST) today the National Weather Service in Chicago is getting word out about more lake effect likely to impact the Region this morning. Here's info:
Lake effect snow will continue to develop and move south southwest across southern Lake Michigan this morning through early afternoon. Latest radar imagery indicates that this snow may reach parts of Lake County Illinois by 10 AM, Cook County by 11 AM, and then likely Lake and Porter counties in Indiana by late morning. Although all locations within this area could observe snow, it does appear likely that the better development will remain confined to areas near the lake. Light to moderate snow with brief bursts of heavier snow is possible before this development shifts east into northwest Indiana, exiting the area by early to mid afternoon. Snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are possible across southeast Cook County, and Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties in Indiana, with isolated higher amounts not out of the question.
Snow cover roads and visibility falling to 1 mile or less at times could occur under the heaviest snow. Individuals traveling across northeast Illinois and northwest Indiana should prepare to encounter highly variable conditions over short distances under this lake effect snow.
