A winter weather advisory runs from midnight Tuesday to 10 a.m. Wednesday (Dec. 11).
The National Weather Service has issued an urgent weather message with a forecast that calls for the likelihood of accumulating snow late tonight and through the rush hour on Wednesday morning.

The winter weather advisory covers much of northern Illinois, including Will County, and remains in effect from midnight Tuesday (Dec. 10) until 10 a.m. Wednesday (Dec. 11).

According to the NWS' timing, snow will spread east across the advisory area between midnight and 4 a.m., peaking in intensity over north central Illinois between 3-6 a.m. and over the Chicago area between 4-8 a.m.

The National Weather Service says snow accumulation of around 2-4 inches can be expected in the advisory area. This could create treacherous traveling conditions for the Wednesday morning rush hour with snowfall rates of up to a half-inch per hour possible during periods of the most intense snow.

Also, the NWS said very cold temperatures will make non-treated surfaces more hazardous, with snow immediately accumulating on roadways.

2-4 inches doesn't seem like much, but it can sure make a mess of the roads. Commute could be brutal on Wednesday.
