CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for the following nearby Illinois communities: Algonquin, Cary, Crystal Lake, Fox River Grove (west side of town), Island Lake, Lake in the Hills, Marengo, McHenry, and Richmond.

Burlington, WI; Elkhorn, WI; Kenosha, WI; Lake Geneva, WI; and Racine, WI are under a WINTER STORM WARNING.

Currently Arlington Heights has only a 10% chance of a 3-inch snow event between 6:00 p.m. and midnight Thursday, and a 60% chance of a one-inch snow event for the same period.

STANDBY FOR WINTER STORM WARNING TO POSSIBLE BE EXTENDED EASTWARD TO NORTHWEST COOK COUNTY AND CHICAGO METRO
The approaching storm is intense and dynamic with embedded thunderstorms possible, high winds likely, and snowfall amounts difficult to forecast. Residents should keep an eye on the weather for changing conditions and storm track. Forecasters are not certain when rain will change to snow, which makes snowfall amounts difficult to forecast. High steady winds and high gusts, and possibly some thunderstorms are expected in the area. Current forecast puts northwest Cook County snowfall east of the 4:00 a.m. WINTER STORM WATCH area at about 1-3 inches, but the snowfall could be higher in thundersnow areas or with other changes in storm conditions. The wind is a factor contributing to the forecast of Winter Storm conditions.
