Season's 1st wintry storm forecast to bring up to 10 inches to parts of northern Illinois


ROMEOVILLE, Illinois — Northern Illinois could see 10 inches of snow as the first wintry storm of the season comes into the state.

The National Weather Service says a mix of rain and snow Friday evening will turn to snow on Saturday. Snowfall totals will be as high as 8 to 10 inches across north-central Illinois. The area near Interstate 80 is forecast to see 3 to 6 inches and the shores of Lake Michigan should see 2 to 5 inches.

Forecasters say warm ground temperatures will keep snow from accumulating at first but increasing snowfall rates overnight will mean accumulations on Saturday.

A winter storm warning is in effect for northern Illinois and winter weather advisory for central Illinois from the western border through Peoria and up to Joliet.
