Monday night is going to be a game of snow roulette, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

A “heavy band” of lake effect snow is forecast to hit Southeastern Cook County and Will County east of I57 beginning 11 p.m. Monday night and and last until 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.

But there’s a catch.

The NWS says the snowfall region will be less than 10 miles wide, so conditions can vary dramatically in a short distance. The heaviest hit areas could get 6 to 12 inches of snowfall. Temperatures are also expected to plummet and “dangerously cold wind chills” may exist.

A wind chill advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. Tuesday, with chills expected as low as 25 degrees below zero.

Residents are advised to stock up on food and supplies Monday evening.
