Prairie Grove District 46, Crystal Lake Elementary District 47, Community High School District 155, Alden-Hebron School District 19 and Fox River Grove District 3 called off the in-person classwork scheduled for Tuesday as the storm approached Monday afternoon.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning and a hazardous weather outlook for much of northern Illinois from 4 p.m. Monday until noon Tuesday, warning some areas may see as much as 8 inches of snow accumulate and that a wintry mix of freezing rain is possible, with windy northeast gusts of up to 40 mph.
Most of McHenry County is forecasted to see snowfall begin around 6 p.m, while the southwest portion of the county could see snow begin earlier, according to the National Weather Service. Snow will be light for one to two hours before picking up in intensity.
