The NWS Chicago office expired the Winter Weather Advisory for Cook County and several other counties by 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 15, 2022. The Winter Weather Advisory initially continued for Lake, Kenosha, Walworth, and Racine counties, but at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday the Winter Weather Advisory was limited to Lake County, Illinois.
Many of the roadways in Lake County are wet with only a few that are snow-covered, according to images available on Lake County Passage traffic cameras. One of the roads with the most snow cover was Route 43 at Abbott Gate 4 near North Chicago and south of Gurnee.
The greatest snow amounts from this morning were observed in DuPage, Kendall, and western portions of Cook counties, where 2-3.5 inches of snow accumulated. Snowfall in Arlington Heights amounted to incomplete covering of grassy areas and little or no accumulation on any paved surfaces.
Temperatures along the Lake Michigan shoreline from Lake County to Cook County are 35°F while inland temperatures are 34°F even as far west as Rockford.
Weather Radar showed scattered light precipitation over northern Illinois with the heaviest precipitation visible near the Lake Michigan shoreline in Lake County. The lake effect snow bands are moving north to south.

Lake-effect snow showers continue to fall on parts of Lake and northeastern Cook counties resulting in slushy accumulations on roads and poor visibilities. Use extra caution when driving under these snow showers. #ILwx pic.twitter.com/yYyuDyPPdG
