Weather Advisory Issued for Evergreen Park

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Chicago area, which will bring in significant snow and strong winds.

After unseasonably warm weather for the Chicago area, the National Weather Service said Evergreen Park and surrounding municipalities can expect the first major snowfall of the season.

A winter weather advisory will be in effect for the Chicago area from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12, bringing significant snow and strong winds. According to the National Weather Service, "the snow will develop by midday Thursday and continue into Friday morning." Four to eight inches of snow may blanket the area, the service said.

Wind chills are expected to drop to near zero. Strong winds will produce blowing and drifting snow, "especially in outlying and open areas," said the National Weather Service.

Because the snow may impede travel conditions and limit visibility, use caution when driving and plan your commute accordingly. Evergreen Park Patch's Traffic and Gas Guide provides up-to-the-minute gas and travel information, complete with current construction projects and street closures.

Make sure you're ready for the snow. Visit the Evergreen Park Patch Places Directory to find out where you can get salt, shovels and other products to prepare for the snow.
