Snow expected to taper off

CRYSTAL LAKE – The roughly 3 inches of snow McHenry County received Saturday is not expected to be added on to with any more accumulation in the coming week.


Despite the possibility of a light dusting overnight Saturday, meteorologist Gino Izzi said the most recent snowfall should be the only significant accumulation in the near future. But temperatures are expected to reach 20 degrees below zero with wind chills on Sunday and Monday.


Hope exists for a breakthrough into warmer temperatures Thursday when it could reach 30 degrees, according the National Weather Service. Some light snow showers could occur Thursday and Friday but not accumulation is expected.


Izzi said his hope is Thursday’s potential break into 30 degrees will lead to a string of days in the 20s and 30s.
