The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for areas of Will and Kendall counties, including Yorkville, effective Tuesday morning through Tuesday evening.
Snow — possibly mixed with sleet — is expected to begin Tuesday morning, continuing into the afternoon and tapering to lighter snow Tuesday evening. Snowfall may be heavy at times throughout the day Tuesday, according to the NWS.
The National Weather Service predicts 3-6 inches of snow across Kendall County and the Chicagoland area. The NWS is also predicting wind gusts of up to 40 mile per hour.
People are encouraged to take precaution while driving due to limited visibility and hazardous road conditions.
In Yorkville, residents are prohibited from parking on city streets any time snow reaches a depth of two or more inches until streets have been plowed. Violaters can incur a $50 fine, according to the city snow regulations.
