30 Jan 11 - A major snowstorm could bring up to two feet of snow or more to Chicago and the suburbs by early Wednesday, including the entire northern Illinois and northwest Indiana area.

"The system is the most powerful system in this region in many years, which will bury Chicago in two feet of snowfall by the time it is over", warned TWS Meteorologist Kevin Martin. "The system is not to be taken lightly and if you are in the affected areas you need to prepare for this".

The snow should begin accumulating Tuesday afternoon, fall at a rate of 3 inches per hour and end by early Wednesday, according to National Weather Service metrologist Richard Castro.

 “We will have blowing and drifting, causing blizzard or white-out conditions for a time,” Castro said.

By Wednesday afternoon, northerly winds will continue that could prolong the snow over northwest Indiana, causing some “potentially significant” lake-effect snow, Castro said.

The snowfall record for this area remains the 23 inches that fell during the “infamous storm” in January 1967, he said.
