CRYSTAL LAKE – Monday’s reminder that spring isn’t here yet is expected to continue Tuesday with more snowfall.

After warmer temperatures hit McHenry County last week, forecasters are predicting a
70 percent chance of snow showers with less than an inch of accumulation Tuesday morning, meteorologist Stephen Rodriguez said.

“Drivers should prepare for slippery road conditions and reduced visibility,” Rodriguez said. “The snow could be heavy, which could easily accumulate on area roadways.”

The McHenry Police Department said in a text alert that several crashes were reported Monday night.

Tuesday will bring a high temperature of about 37 degrees and a low of about 23.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for McHenry County from 3 p.m. to midnight Monday, predicting 2 to
3 inches of heavy, wet snow and sleet. Snowfall began about 6 p.m.

Wind gusts reached between 25 mph and
35 mph Monday, according to the weather service.

Temperatures were about 40 degrees and expected to drop to lows in the 20s overnight.
