It’s been a relatively mild winter in Chicago, but forecasters warn Thursday is the day to finally grab long underwear and your warmest parka as a hazardous, snowy morning commute will give way to a blast of arctic air moving into the area.

The National Weather Service said the worst visibility will be south of Interstate 80 Thursday morning as snow is still falling there at a moderate rate. But meteorologists said motorists throughout the area can expect “reduced visibilities, gusty winds, and sharply falling temperatures this morning as an arctic cold front continues to move into the region.”

At Chicago’s official recording station, O’Hare International Airport, more than 3 inches of snow had fallen as of 6 a.m., according to the weather service. At Midway Airport and the weather service headquarters in Romeoville, 3.3 inches fell. Rockford had 2.2 inches as of 6 a.m.

Another 1 to 2 inches could fall before the storm system leaves the area Thursday and a blast of arctic air moves in behind it. Motorists should allow extra time to get to their destination and they should be prepared for a slow-moving drive and travel farther behind the car in front of them than usual.

As of 7 a.m. there were reports of a jackknifed tractor-trailer on the outbound Kennedy Expressway near Roselle Road, which was blocking all lanes of traffic. An Illinois Department of Transportation road condition map showed most major roadways were at least partially covered with ice and snow.

Most counties in northern Illinois remained under a winter weather advisory which was expected to expire at 6 p.m., according to the weather service. There are also lakeshore flood advisories as strong winds will create large waves along the lakefront.

Because temperatures are expected to drop so rapidly, any areas of wet pavement will quickly turn to ice, making the commute even more dangerous, forecasters said.

Snowfall should stop by noon for most parts of the Chicago metro area, meteorologists said, but northwest Indiana could get a few more inches of snow due to the lake effect.

“Snow will finally begin to taper from west to east through noon, although lake effect snow will continue across parts of Lake (IN) and Porter Counties,” the weather service wrote on its website. “An additional 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected, although 2-5 inches of additional accumulations are expected across parts of Porter County.”
