CHICAGO (WLS) -- Three to 6 inches of snow are possible north and west of the city on the first weekend of spring, ABC7 Chicago Meteorologist Tracy Butler said.
A Winter Storm Warning was issued for Lake, McHenry, Boone, Ogle, Winnebago, DeKalb, Kane and Lee counties in Illinois, but has since expired.
A Winter Weather Advisory was issued for DuPage, Kendall, LaSalle and northern Cook counties, but has since expired.
A Winter Storm Warning has also been issued until 4 p.m. for Milwaukee, Racine and Waukesha counties in Wisconsin. A warning for Kenosha County has expired.
A few inches of snow fell overnight and early Saturday morning across the northwest suburbs and near the Wisconsin border.
Patience is running out for people across the Midwest as another storm comes down during the first week of spring.
"Why is it still snowing!? I'm not happy about it," said Lianne Rash, a Libertyville resident.
"I wouldn't mind being able to see the sun a little bit more, maybe wake up and not be clinging to a blanket for warmth. That'd be nice," said Ethan, a Wisconsin resident.
People in Crystal Lake woke up to a snowy scene near downtown. That was the case for most of the area before the snow turned into more of a slush later on.
Many drivers caught the worst of it while heading to their spring break destinations.
"It wasn't snowing too bad out in Illinois, but closer I get to Milwaukee, it's starting to get real bad," said Emanuel Pugh, who is traveling to Milwaukee.
Ethan said he encountered icy roads.
"I think we had about 4 or 5 inches on the ground. As we were starting to get down towards Chicago O'Hare area, there was actually ice on the roads. So, it was like 40-50 mile-an-hour driving, so we lost traction a few times to on the way in the back roads," he said.
With warmer days on the horizon, some are hopeful, yet skeptical that this is the last of the winter weather.
"It's probably gonna be the last one of the season but, you know, it's Illinois. So, we don't know what to expect next week," said Ivan Velez, a Romeoville resident.
The counties with the since-expired winter storm warnings are more likely to see six inches or even more snow, Butler said.

Rain showers developed on Friday night across much of the area, and, overnight, some of that rain was heavy. The rain transitioned to snow near Lake and McHenry counties between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m., said ABC7 Meteorologist Jaisol Martinez.
Heavy rain in area then halted early Saturday morning, but a rain/snow mix around and south of the city started around lunch time. That could add up to an inch of precipitation, which will likely be slushy snow.
There will be a very sharp cut-off between the areas that get accumulating snow and those that get a minor coating on the lawns.
The snow should end between 3 and 5 p.m., Martinez said.
