Snow should impact the area later tonight and end before rush hour Tuesday morning. Snow is expected to start accumulating between 8pm and 9 pm tonightand the bulk of the accumulations should be down by 2am Tuesday. At this point accumulations in Evanston are expected to be around 2.5″. The heaviest snowfall will occur south of the metro Chicago area. Temperatures are cold so this will be a low moisture content snow which will blow around some when the winds pickup tomorrow.

Public Works has anti-iced all the main roads with a combination of salt brine and beet juice because of the cold temperatures.
Crews are on alert and will begin operations as soon as accumulations occur.
