Weather officials warn of snowy New Year's Eve

CHICAGO — Weather officials say residents of northern Illinois could see a snowy end to 2013.

The National Weather Service predicts three to five inches of snow starting Tuesday afternoon in much of northern Illinois including McHenry County. A winter weather advisory from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning affects Rockford, DeKalb, Chicago and other cities north of U.S. Route 30.

Slick and snow-covered roads are expected to make travel hazardous. Visibility may be limited.

Parts of southern Illinois could see light snow starting Wednesday.

Local officials and authorities are urging extra caution on the roads with the festivities and possible snowy weather.
