The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Chicago, saying up to 6 inches of snow was possible come Monday morning.

As for what may come:

Snowfall rates could exceed an inch per hour at times, according to the advisory, which covers Cook County and nearby counties between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday. That could make for dangerous travel conditions, with slick roads and reduced visibility.

Between 3 to 6 inches of snow are expected across the area.

The NWS also advises to take travel precautions, as "a winter weather advisory for snow means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties." So be prepared and be cautious. Old man winter just. won't. die. However, the warmest temperatures for a while are on their way, which may present its own set of complications.
