Discussion

If I could give some advice to the National Weather Service, it would be to just put a “winter storm watch” out for this area until mid-February. One snowstorm began the work week and we are not even close to being done with the stormy pattern that will last right into mid-month. A second and complex storm will spread frozen precipitation our way tonight and there will be a small accumulation of snow (1-3 inches) before a potential significant buildup of ice by morning and a wintry mix will continue for much of the morning on Wednesday; especially, in the N and W suburbs. Expect slick road conditions later tonight and early tomorrow with this latest batch of snow and ice. An ice buildup of one-tenth to one-quarter of an inch late tonight and early tomorrow could cause tree limb and power outage issues; especially, in the N and W suburbs. Dry and cold air follows for Thursday and Friday and then attention will turn to the Deep South. A storm looks like it will pull out of the southern states later this weekend and head towards the east coast with lots of moisture, but there are still lots of details left to be ironed out for this system.
