…BLIZZARD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH

LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT… …WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS CANCELLED…

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN CHICAGO HAS CANCELLED THE WINTER

WEATHER ADVISORY. A BLIZZARD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY

AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

AS WINDS DIMINISH THIS MORNING…THE BLOWING AND DRIFTING OF SNOW WILL

ALSO SUBSIDE. NO MORE SNOW ACCUMULATION IS EXPECTED OUTSIDE OF A FEW

SCATTERED FLURRIES THIS MORNING. THUS THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS

CANCELLED FOR THIS MORNING.

HOWEVER…ANOTHER CLIPPER SYSTEM WILL TRACK ACROSS NORTHERN ILLINOIS

AND NORTHWEST INDIANA ON WEDNESDAY…BRINGING ANOTHER ROUND OF SNOW.

THIS SYSTEM…POTENTIALLY…LOOKS TO BE EVEN STRONGER THAN THE SYSTEM

TRACKING THROUGH THE REGION THIS MORNING. ACCUMULATING SNOW IS

EXPECTED TO DEVELOP AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE

DAY ON WEDNESDAY. TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATION BY WEDNESDAY EVENING WILL

RANGE FROM 2 TO 5 INCHES. STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTING TO 35 MPH

WILL COMBINE WITH THE FRESH SNOW COVER TO PRODUCE BLIZZARD OR NEAR

BLIZZARD CONDITIONS FROM LATE WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

DANGEROUSLY COLD WIND CHILLS OF 20 BELOW TO 35 BELOW ZERO ARE ALSO

EXPECTED BY LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

A BLIZZARD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FALLING AND/OR BLOWING

SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS AND EXTREMELY POOR VISIBILITIES. THIS CAN LEAD

TO WHITEOUT CONDITIONS AND MAKE TRAVEL VERY DANGEROUS.
