Snowstorm May be Mokena Bound for Thursday
Ice and snow are projected to strike the area later this week.
After a nearly snowless early December, Mokena may finally see some winter weather in the coming days.
According to AccuWeather:
"A blizzard will unfold near the Colorado/Kansas border Wednesday and will roll northeastward to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and central Ontario by late Thursday. The storm will become known for high winds over the Plains, Midwest and eventually the East.
Over the Plains and the Upper Midwest, where snow falls and wind gusts reach 50 mph, extensive blowing and drifting snow is in store with local whiteout conditions. Widespread travel problems are anticipated with this storm."
Chicagoland is among the areas at risk for quick freezing and icy roads, AccuWeather says.
