CHICAGO, Ill. – The Chicago area is on the line of another blizzard that could leave an additional 1 to 2 inches of element white, in addition to snow accumulation from the recent massive winter storm.
According to the National Weather Service, during the night this Sunday there will be periods of rain and wet snow, and winds with gusts of between 15 to 20 miles per hour. The probability of precipitation 100%.
Although it may not sound like much, the new winter storm could add to the problems of Chicago area residents, who continue to suffer from the recent massive snowfall.
The Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation (DSS) has activated a Phase II, deploying 211 snow vehicles in response to a winter snow system. Salt spreaders will focus on tackling snow along the Chicago Arterial and Lake Shore Drive routes to ensure they are safe and passable for motorists.
Drivers are cautioned that snow could result in slippery road conditions throughout the area. DSS staff will continue to monitor weather and soil conditions. Therefore, extreme caution is suggested when driving.
Additionally, as temperatures begin to rise in our area, existing snow could begin to melt and excessive snowmelt could create the potential for flooding. Experts suggest clearing gutters and gutters of debris and snow to allow water to flow.
This is a story in development. We will keep you posted on any new developments.
