Weather Chicago: Fog, rain could cause hazardous conditions across area

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Chicago area was under a dense fog advisory Tuesday morning, with visibility down to less than a quarter mile in some areas.

The heavy fog and showers were causing hazardous driving conditions for the morning commute, the National Weather Service said. The advisory was in effect until 10 a.m. for Cook, Will, Kane, DuPage, LaSalle, Kendall, Grundy, Livingston, Ogle, Lee and DeKalb counties, though the fog could linger into the afternoon.

The fog is from a low pressure system that "provides a tug of war between winter and spring" across the area, the weather service said.

After temperatures in the 40s on Monday, the highs for the rest of the week will remain in the 20s with a chance of snow on Thursday.

A Flood Warning is in effect for Bureau, LaSalle and Putnam counties until midnight Monday. There are also ongoing flood warnings in Lake, Newton, Jasper and Porter counties in Indiana.
