The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a lake effect Snow Advisory... which is in effect from 10 am this morning to 10 PM CDT this evening. The Winter Weather Advisory has been replaced with the lake effect Snow Advisory.
* Timing... snow showers will develop this morning and continue into this evening... with the focus gradually shifting farther west into Lake County Indiana late this afternoon and evening.
* Snow... heavy bursts of lake effect snow showers are possible and could even be accompanied by thunder and lightning. If heavy snow does occur then visibilities would be dramatically reduced... potentially to a quarter mile at times in isolated areas.
* Accumulation... localized slushy snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are possible... especially on grassy areas. There is a slight chance of locally heavier snowfall totals.
* Other impacts... strong winds will result in snow being wind whipped and further reduce visibilities.
A lake effect Snow Advisory Means Lake-effect snow is forecast that will make travel difficult in some areas. Lake-effect snow showers typically align themselves in bands and will likely be intense enough to drop several inches in localized areas. Use caution when traveling.
