A Winter Storm Warming is in effect from 1:00 pm Monday to noon Tuesday for Northern Herkimer County. The Mohawk Valley will see about 3 to 6 inches of snow. Lows in the upper 20s.

System snow will be ongoing for especially northern areas in the morning, spreading southward.

The stronger winds will occur during the Monday morning commute and could pose a brief period of significant travel impacts. These areas will see a mix of rain and snow Monday with the possibility of some freezing rain Monday night creating slick roads on top of heavy snowfall by Tuesday morning.

Heaviest snow is expected in northernmost sections, the city of Chicago and in northwest in, although with northerly winds off Lake Michigan, lake-enhanced snowfall could push totals well in excess of the 6-inches close-in or where a northern wind fetch drives snow well inland over certain areas. The lake-effect snow will taper off Tuesday evening.
