Statement as of 9:31 AM CDT on October 31, 2014

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on October 31, 2014


... Lake effect Snow Advisory remains in effect until 10 PM CDT
this evening...

* timing... snow showers will continue at times into this
evening... with the focus gradually shifting farther west into
Lake County Indiana late this afternoon and evening.

reduced... potentially to a quarter mile at times in isolated
areas.

* Accumulation... localized slushy snow accumulations of 1 to 3
inches are possible... especially on grassy areas. There is a
slight chance of locally heavier snowfall totals.

* Other impacts... strong winds will result in snow being wind
whipped and further reduce visibilities.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A lake effect Snow Advisory Means Lake-effect snow is forecast
that will make travel difficult in some areas. Lake-effect snow
showers typically align themselves in bands and will likely be
intense enough to drop several inches in localized areas. Use
caution when traveling.
