Band of moderate snowfall moving east through the Chicago metro area late this afternoon

 A band of moderate snow moving east of Chicago will be followed by similar band by 5Pm. The metro area will be experiencing an occasional sharp decrease in visibility in some of the more moderate snow showers with possible minor accumulations. Traffic headed home will be slowed down somewhat and roads could even become slick in spots with temperatures hovering right at the 32-degree mark.

 

The cold front triggering this snow will be east of the city out over Lake Michigan later this evening. Behind the front winds pick up – becoming westerly at 25 with occasional gusts to 40 miles per hour. Strong west to northwest winds gusting to 40 mph will continue through the night.
