McHenry County will face cold, snow and possible thunderstorms Sunday, according to the National Weather Service in Romeoville.
A significant storm system is expected to move into the area in the morning, bringing strong winds and snow, meteorologist Ben Deubelbeis said.
“There’s an elevated snow risk on Sunday,” he said. “We’ve got a deep area of low pressure lifting across the region. ... It’s tracking to the south, and it’s pulling in some pretty cold air here into the Midwest.”
Deubelbeis said the county could receive a couple inches of snow, but the pavement may be warm enough to melt some of it.
He said Sunday’s high will be 34 degrees.
“We can see accumulating snow even into early May,” he said. “We’ve had a number of events in mid-April where we see 1 to 5 inches of snow in the area.”
He said there also is the potential for an isolated thunderstorm Sunday morning.
He said Monday will be a bit warmer with a high in the upper 40s.
