There is increasing confidence in a slow and slippery Wednesday morning commute for much of Chicagoland, necessitating the expansion of the Winter Weather Advisory across the entire forecast area (instead of south of I-88). An extension in time was also made for Lake Michigan-bordering counties to account for lake effect snow along the backside of the system. Deeper snow is forecast in Chicago near the lake due to lake effect snow.

Weather Radar shows snow mixed with rain in southwest Missouri, moving northeast toward Chicagoland. Snowfall in the northwest suburbs is not expected to be significant until about 3:00 a.m. Flurries might start about 1:00 a.m. About 1 inch of snow is expected to fall by 6:00 a.m., and then another 3 inches of snow if forecast for all day Wednesday through Thursday morning until about 11:00 a.m. Warming surface temperatures above the freezing mark may slow down meaningful snow accumulations Wednesday afternoon. The highest snowfall rates will be from 4:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday near Arlington Heights. The snow will be wet and heavy (10:1 to 12:1 inches of snow to 1 inch liquid).
