Winter Storm Warning

A winter storm warning has been issued for our area starting today at 4 p.m. until Tuesday at 5 p.m. Heavy snow is expected later this evening and early overnight with a total of 5 to 8 inches of snow predicted. Driving may be difficult. The City of Naperville said public works is preparing to treat roadways around the clock starting this afternoon until the end of the storm.

Phase 1b DuPage County

Today DuPage County is scheduled to move into Phase 1b of their COVID-19 vaccination plan. Phase 1b includes residents over the age of 65 and frontline essential workers like first responders, educators and education support staff, and grocery store employees. That will make another estimated 3.2 million Illinoisans eligible for the vaccine. Will County hopes to make an announcement soon on when it will be able to transition to Phase 1b. You can register for COVID-19 vaccine appointment notifications with the DuPage County Health Department or the Will County Health Department on their websites.
