Illinois braces for latest punch of winter weather

ROMEOVILLE (AP) — The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for parts of northeastern Illinois, forecasting more than half a foot of snow.

The warning runs from 10 p.m. Tuesday through 1 p.m. Wednesday. It includes the Chicago area southwest to Kankakee and Pontiac. Much of the rest of northern and central Illinois are part of a winter weather advisory.

The National Weather Service in Romeoville says northern Illinois could receive four to eight inches of snow by midmorning Wednesday. At some points, the snow could fall at a rate of an inch or two per hour.

Northwestern Illinois is expected to get between two and four inches of snow and central Illinois could receive three to five inches.

Meteorologists say blizzard conditions are possible with winds reaching 40 mph.
