Monday’s forecast of 3 to 5 inches seemed like more than enough, but on Tuesday, the National Weather Service revised its winter weather advisory for DuPage and Kane counties, which now predicts 4 to 8 inches of snow by Wednesday afternoon.
The winter weather advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014, a snowy start to the new year.
According to the advisory, the steadier snowfall will continue this evening into the early part of the overnight hours, followed by a lull into Wednesday morning, when a second period of heavier snowfall will begin and continue into the afternoon.
A winter weather advisory for snow indicates primarily travel difficulties for snow on roads and limited visibility. The National Weather Service urges caution while driving.
