After several days of spring-like weather, winter is making its way back into Chicagoland, and the Oswego area could see up to 5 inches of snow.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Kendall County, effective from 9 a.m. Wednesday to 4 a.m. Thursday.
The snow is expected to start at about 9 a.m. Wednesday, possibly as a mix of rain and snow, the NWS said.
Wet snow accumulation of up to 5 inches is likely, with the highest snowfall expected in the southeastern portion of Kendall, DuPage and Grundy counties. But some areas in the northwestern portion of the counties could see relatively little snow, the NWS said.
Strong wind gusts of 40 to 45 mph may “create a wind-whipped snow that will cause sharp visibility reductions,” making travel hazardous, the NWS reported.
Drivers are urged to be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibility, and to use caution while driving.
