CBS 2 Weather Watch (5 P.M. 10-30-19)


DON’T MISS THE MORNING INSIDERS TOMORROW STARTING AT 6:00 A.M. HERE ON CBS 2. NOW BACK TO THE WEATHER BOTCH. LIVE LOOK AT GRANT PARK. THAT PRETTY MUCH SUMS UP THE DAY. MESSY. MISERABLE. MARY KAY IS HERE NOW TRACKING THE SNOW FOR US. THE DRIZZLE. THAT FOG IS GOING TO BE REPLACED BY SNOW AS WE MOVE THROUGH THE NIGHT. THAT’S WHY A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FOR THE DAY TOMORROW AND IT STARTS LATE TONIGHT BUT THIS GOES IN EFFECT UNTIL 6:00 P.M. TOMORROW AND IT DOES INCLUDE COOK COUNTY. ADD TO THAT HIGH WINDS MAKING FOR HIGH WAVES, 7 TO 10-FOOT WAVES. LAKE SHORE FLOODING WILL BE AN ISSUE AS WELL. WE DO HAVE A LAKE SHORE FLOOD ADVISORY IN EFFECT TOMORROW UNTIL 4:00 IN THE AFTERNOON BECAUSE WINDS WILL BE VERY STRONG OUT OF THE NORTH AND NORTHWEST. RIGHT NOW ON HIGH RESOLUTION RADAR, FINE MIST AROUND. ALSO THAT FOG IS WITH US. BUT THE MAIN PORTION OF THE STORM, THE UPPER LEVEL PORTION OF IT IS STILL OUT HERE TO THE WEST. THIS IS GOING TO BE MOVING OVERHEAD TOWARD MORNING AND DURING THE DAY TOMORROW, PULLING WITH IT THE SNOW YOU SEE OVER IOWA. SO WHAT WE CAN EXPECT IS THE DRIZZLE TO INCREASE TO RAIN SHOWERS THIS EVENING. IT DOES CHANGE TO SNOW OVERNIGHT, ESPECIALLY AS WE GET TO THAT MIDNIGHT HOUR. THAT’S WHEN WE START TO SEE OUR WEST AND NORTHWEST SUBURBS CHANGE OVER. SNOW SHOWERS ALL DAY LONG ON THE ILLINOIS SIDE. THIS IS THROUGH NOON AND NORTHWEST INDIANA IN THE AFTERNOON STARTS HAVING THE CHANGE OVER TO SNOW. THERE’S ALSO THAT LAKE SHORE FLOOD THREAT. THAT’S IN EFFECT BECAUSE OF THE WINDS COMING STRONG. GUSTING TO 30 MILES PER HOUR AT TIMES, CREATING THOSE HIGH WAVES AROUND. SO RIGHT NOW IT’S HARD TO SEE OUTSIDE. VISIBILITY IS LOW OUT THERE. WE HAVE THE DRIZZLE AT O’HARE, WE HAVE LIGHT RAIN. WE HAVE 40 DEGREES. WINDS ARE OUT OF THE NORTH AT 16 MILES PER HOUR. SO IT IS COLD. COLD AIR IN PLACE. LOW 40s, NORTHWEST INDIANA. IN OTTAWA, 35 DEGREES. THAT’S ONE PLACE WE’RE GOING TO SEE THE SNOW FIRST. BY 10:00 WE’LL START THE CHANGEOVER. THEN THE SNOW LINE IS GOING TO CONTINUE MOVING TO THE EAST. THIS EVENING, DRIZZLE INCREASING TO RAIN. THEN THE SNOW LINE SETS UP AT 10:00 FOR OUR NORTHWEST SUBURBS. BY MIDNIGHT STARTS STEPPING THROUGH O’HARE. THEN AS WE GET INTO THE EARLY MORNING HOURS AT 5:00 A.M., ALMOST PUSHING TO THE ILLINOIS STATE LINE. THEN SWINGING THE SNOW INTO NORTHWEST INDIANA BUT STILL SNOWING ON THE ILLINOIS SIDE EVEN AT NOON TOMORROW. WE SEE THE NORTHWEST SUBURBS DRYING OUT AT 5:00. EVENTUALLY ALL OF THIS PUSHING OUT OF THE PICTURE. HOW MUCH SNOW ARE WE EXPECTING? LOOKS LIKE IN DEKALB AND OTTAWA, THAT’S WHERE WE COULD SEE THOSE ISOLATED HIGHER TOTALS. RIGHT ALONG THE LAKE FRONT I THINK WITH THE 56-DEGREE WATER TEMPERATURE AND THE WIND OFF THE LAKE THAT’S GOING TO HOLD DOWN AMOUNTS THERE AS WE GO THROUGH THE NIGHT AND MORNING HOURS. FOR SNOW AMOUNTS, IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S GOING TO BE MOST IMPRESSIVE FOR THOSE SUBURBS. WHAT A HALLOWEEN FOR US. TEMPERATURES ARE GOING TO BE STRUGGLING. 35 IS OUR MORNING DAYTIME HIGH. FALLING AFTER THAT, ONLY SIX TIMES WE’VE HAD SNOW ON HALLOWEEN. MOST RECENTLY, 2014 WHERE WE HAD
