From the NWS blizzard warning:

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded, stay with your vehicle.

The blizzard warning in Wisconsin is limited to Kenosha, Racine and Walworth counties, but most of the northern half of Illinois is also under the blizzard warning.
