Tuesday16update

Lake effect snow showers will increase across Lake and Cook counties in northeast IL early this morning, and will spread into northwest Indiana by late morning. Light to occasionally moderate snow showers will reduce visibility, and create slick spots on snow covered roads. Amounts of generally 1-3\” are expected in most spots, except later today in Porter county, where heavier lake effect snow bands will likely be more persistent, and continue tonight. Snowfall amounts of 4-6\” are possible in parts of Porter county, where a Winter Storm Watch is in effect through tonight. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect this morning for IL, and through this afternoon for Lake county IN.
Those traffic reporters will be busy this morning because we all know how to drive in these conditions. I seriously think we are caught in some multidimensional loop that prevents some from advancing in their knowledge of how to drive in inclement conditions. I mean seriously, how long have you lived in the Chicago area? Yes autonomous driving vehicles are needed now! I wonder when those bad boys take to the streets, will there be a way for the autonomous car to flip off an idiot driver and maybe yell obscenities and inappropriate names through a externally mounted speaker? I know what I’m sending Tesla’s design improvement suggestion box.
