Snow along with freezing drizzle could make for dicey driving conditions Thursday night and Friday morning.
The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for much of the Chicago suburbs with snow expected to start late Thursday afternoon and continue into the night before switching to freezing drizzle and light snow by early Friday.
Between three to five inches of snow is predicted for Algonquin and Lake in the Hills late Thursday. Snow and freezing drizzle is expected before noon on Friday. Temperatures will reach a high of 35 degrees later in the day on Friday.
"Anyone planning travel across Northern Illinois or Northwest Indiana should be prepared for wintry precipitation and associated travel impacts from this winter storm," according to the hazardous outlook posted on the NWS website.
So far this season, Chicago has only seen a total snowfall accumulation of 10.9 inches, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The same storm system is expected to drop over a foot of snow on some of the Plains states over the next day, according to the Chicago Tribune.
