The slushy Monday morning just turned into the cold afternoon, with below-freezing temperatures that could make for slippery roads and sidewalks.
The National Weather Service-Chicago has a Hazardous Weather Outlook in place for Kane County and the Northern Illinois region. but the reason isn't the freezing that follows the rain.
It's the wind.
Winds of 20 and 30 mph are expected, with gusts up to 40 mphs. The NWS-Chicago said to be especially aware of the winds if you're driving on Interstate 55.
There's also a chance of snow this afternoon and scattered flurries before midnight.
The Hazardous Weather Outlook is likely to be lifted on Tuesday, which is supposed to be mostly sunny, with a high near 27 and a west wind between 5 and 15 mph.
I'm paraphrasing, but WGN's Tom Skilling said it well on Channel 9's noon weather report today:
"If you don't like the weather around here," he said, "just wait a minute."
