Scattered snow showers Friday evening, Saturday could reduce visibility

Sub-zero wind chills are expected late Saturday night into early Sunday morning

Traffic flows smoothly through the snow Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2022, on I-88 in DeKalb. Tuesday was the first measurable snowfall in DeKalb County this season.

Scattered snow showers once again will affect northern Illinois, some causing sharp reductions in visibility both Friday evening and Saturday, the National Weather Service advised.

A hazardous weather outlook was issued about 3 p.m. Friday for McHenry, Lake, Ogle, Lee, DeKalb, Kane, DuPage, La Salle, Kendall and Grundy counties, as well as parts of Will and Cook counties.

The snow was expected to continue into the early evening Friday, resulting in a “quick dusting of snow,” the National Weather Service said in the outlook.

Scattered snow showers are likely again Saturday, and with westerly winds gusting to 35 mph, “significant reductions in visibility” could occur under the strongest snow showers, according to the outlook.

A quick coating to an inch of snow is possible in some areas, according to weather service. Sub-zero wind chills are expected Saturday night into Sunday morning.
