‘Dangerously Cold Temperatures’ Expected Through Saturday

The snow may be over, but blizzard-like conditions are still a threat.

Cook county will be under a winter weather advisory from 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 3, to 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 4

While the threat of more snow is unlikely, blowing and drifting snow could create blizzard-like conditions for evening commuters, according to the National Weather Service. Wind speeds could be around 20 to 25 mph with gusts reaching 35 mph, the agency added.

"Dangerously cold temperatures" and wind chills starting Friday morning and extending through Tuesday night also are expected throughout northern Illinois, the NWS reports.
