Get ready to say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014. And get ready to put on your hats, boots and gloves, too. The new year is expected to arrive with more cold weather and more snow.
The National Weather Service out of Chicago issued a special statement Monday that calls for light accumulating snow to move across much of northern Illinois and into the Chicago metro area on Monday night. Snow is expected to end in most areas by midnight with total accumulation of a few tenths to around one inch expected in Will County.
Then, on Tuesday—New Year’s Eve—2-4 more inches of snow is expected to hit the area as temperatures remain nearly steady, the afternoon high predicted to reach 17 and the nighttime low expected to drop to 13.
On Wednesday—New Year’s Day—the National Weather Service said the temperature will climb to a high of 24 degrees. And there is a 60 to 70 percent chance of more snowfall.
