Rain will be developing in the next few hours and is expected to change to snow by Midnight. Snow, at varying intensities, will continue until 6 or 7am and then rapidly diminish to flurries. Strong winds will be a part of this system and drifting of snow could be a concern. Some sunshine is expected in the afternoon tomorrow as well.
Current computer models have shifted the storm system about 40 to 50 miles further South which means that now only around 4” of snow is expected for the Evanston area. If the storm continues to trend further south, accumulation totals for the Evanston area could lower.
Forecasts will continue to be monitored for any changes.
Public Works has the full complement of equipment up and ready and both overnight and daytime crews are on standby. Public Works operations are expected to begin after the change over from rain to snow. If the rain intensity is light Public Works crews will pre-treat the streets to minimize any snow compaction to the roads.
Anticipate a slow morning commute and please allow extra time to arrive at your destinations.
More updates to follow as needed.
