McHenry County to see 1-3 inches of snow Tuesday into Wednesday

McHenry County is expected to see more winter weather Tuesday night.

The National Weather Service is predicting McHenry County will see 1-3 inches of snow beginning Tuesday afternoon and continuing into Wednesday morning.

Areas south of the county near the Interstate 80 corridor could see as much as 6 inches.

The snow will increase in intensity after 6 p.m. Tuesday, according to National Weather Service Meteorologist Mark Raltzer. The snow is likely to taper off early Wednesday morning, he added.

There is also a possibility for snow Friday night and into the weekend, but it is too early to predict the exact path of the storm, Raltzer said.

And it doesn't appear that the area will see a warm spell anytime soon. There is a chance for slightly warmer than average temperatures next week, but McHenry County will continue to temperatures dip in the single digits, and occasionally below zero, throughout the week, he said.
