Three to Six Inches of Snow Expected Monday; Winter Weather Advisory Issued

Prepare for hazardous driving conditions Monday as snow is expected to start to fall Monday morning and continue into the evening.

Between three to six inches of snow is expected Monday throughout the Chicago area with the possibility of higher amounts of snow in some areas, according to the National Weather Service. 

A winter weather advisory is in effect from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday for DuPage, Will, Kane, Cook, McHenry, Lake and Kendall counties as well as several other counties throughout northern Illinois, according to the National Weather Service. 

The snow is expected to develop Monday morning and then taper off by early Monday evening. Snowfall rates of an inch or more per hour are possible at times — especially Monday afternoon, according to the NWS.

This will lead to snow-covered roads and will make travel hazardous across the region. The National Weather Service is encouraging residents to be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibility during the course of this winter storm.

Ahhhhh! It's Wed., should I be concerned that I'm getting this headline in my e-mail???

"Oh Batavia Patch where are you???" Love the Patch, not sure what's happening....:(

Susan- I can actually answer that as I e-mailed them last week about the repetetive outdated headlines EVERY day in my e-mail! Their stance is that they're going through some changes and making improvements. During that time some things aren't getting fixed as quickly as others. That's what I was told...I know exactly what you mean, it drives me nuts :) .

Thanks Susan! I was just going to unsubscribe because of the problem. This link came one week after it was originally published. So, I was thinking that it was going to snow on Monday again. LOL I'm ready to throw away the Patch!

Alright, what the hell already, Patch! Get it together! This is a new source. Leading with the same snow story about last week is unprofessional and ridiculous.

The Patch publishing system was sold. New owners.

I've e-mailed them several times regarding this headline that I've gotten e-mailed to me for about two weeks...now that the storm is over! I've let them know that it's unprofessional and that many view the Patch media outlet as a joke these days because, while they're supposedly making improvements, they are not doing ANYTHING to try to retain their audience! They must not pay attention to comments on their articles like this or they'd know the general opinion of themselves as a media outlet. I even suggested they stop posting or e-mailing anything until they have things figured out and just roll out an ALL NEW Patch when they are truly ready...what did I get in response? I got a generic "thank you for your concern, we are working on things kind of reply!" When I asked WHY the generic reply I got, "I only respond in person when the emails are constructive and/or civil, thanks." I'm guessing that's because I use CAPS to emphasize many of my points because, after several attempts to point out how ridiculous they are over the past month or two, I haven't seen a single improvement!!! Everything that we see now was put together by the former staff that was let go when the company changed hands...EXCELLENT local news source, huh?

It's now Friday, Feb 28th and we're still getting a headline from Feb 16. How long is this going to take to fix?

It feels like this is becoming a tribute to the late Harold Ramis a la Groundhog's Day.

Let's take bets on what day they pull it down.

I unsubscribed. So, they have already lost one customer because of this problem.
