Winter won't officially be here for another month, but the Oswego area is expected to get its first blast of snowfall of the season by this weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
The weather service has issued a winter storm watch, in effect from 9 p.m. Friday until 3 p.m. Saturday.
A possible rain and snow mix could begin Friday evening, transitioning to snow and lasting through early to mid-afternoon Saturday, the NWL said.
Snowfall may be heavy at times, with possible accumulation of 2 to 5 inches in areas including Kendall, Kane and Will counties. In Cook and DuPage counties, snowfall of up to 7 inches is possible, according to the NWS.
The NWS is urging drivers to be aware of the potential for difficult driving conditions and reduced visibility.
You'll want to bundle up this weekend, with an expected high of 38 on Saturday and temperatures dipping into the 20s by Sunday, the NWS said.
