Snow and Freezing Drizzle Predicted for Skokie Thursday, Friday

The National Weather Service is predicting three to five inches of new snow accumulation Thursday night in Skokie.


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 Skokie late Thursday. Snow and freezing drizzle is expected before noon on Friday. Temperatures will reach a high of 36 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. 

The same storm system is expected to drop over a foot of snow on some of the Plains states over the next day, Chicago Tribune reported.

So far this season, Chicago has only seen a total snowfall accumulation of 10.9 inches, Chicago Tribune reported. 

Thursday's storm is "likely to be not only the biggest storm of the winter so far, but also a very disruptive one" for the Chicago area, according to an Accuweather.com updated Wednesday.

Snow and ice and once again village leadership is standing there with their eyes closed. It's time to make a change!

Clearly we need an ordinance to carefully screen all precipitation of it's intentions and makeup before allowing it to land on village property. And if it does, penalize the property owner! WAKE UP! Snow is up. Rain is up. Next thing you know this place will be Fairbanks and we'll have seals and penguins! Barking seals and quaking penguins! Is that what you want? Eating fish? Ugh, and they're probably Democrats too.
