Snow continued to fall around Will County on Tuesday morning, causing slick roadways.

The area received 3 to 4 inches of snow over the long weekend, according to National Weather Services estimates, and a chance of flurries persisted through Tuesday.

Wind-chill values could fall as low as minus-3 degrees during the day, and meteorologists predicted a high near 21 degrees. The service warned of significant excessive cold and snow risks as well.

Police and fire officials responded to several multi-vehicle crashes Tuesday morning, as Illinois Department of Transportation officials urged motorists to drive safely during the morning commute on Twitter.
