Snow will slow down Monday morning commute
The air mass over the Stateline is pretty dry with dew points in the low single digits. But those dew points should quickly rise allowing the snow to reach the surface after 8pm. The snow will begin light and then pick up in intensity during the overnight and early Monday morning.
Most of the accumulating snow will be done before Noon Monday, with only a few flurries expected during the remainder of the afternoon and evening.
Snowfall totals by Monday morning should be between 3" and 4", with another inch or two accumulating during the day Monday. Overall 3" to 6" of snow should occur for northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Winds will increase Monday, but blowing and drifting snow shouldn't be a major issue. Road conditions will remain slick through Monday evening.
