Winter Storm Watch for Freezing Rain and Sleet remains in effect for Sunday covering the northern third of Illinois including the Chicago area.


The map below depicts the various watches/warnings/advisories in effect across the United States. In the Midwest, the area in blue (northern Illinois and eastern Iowa) depicts the area under a Winter Storm Watch for a potential ice storm (Freezing rain and Sleet) Sunday afternoon and night. The areas in purple are areas under a Winter Weather Advisory for Sunday and Sunday night for freezing rain, snow and sleet. The pink-shaded area is under a Winter Storm Warning for late Sunday morning through Sunday night for snow, sleet and freezing rain. Probably sometime later tonight the entire Midwest area depicted will be under Winter Storm Warnings/Advisories.
