Public Services Bureau Chief Edgar Cano issued the following weather update for Feb. 14-16.
“Light snow in the area may bring minor accumulation before midnight Feb. 14. Staff is currently monitoring lake effect snow and a weather system that can bring significant accumulation to Evanston in the range of 5 to 10 inches, before ending Tuesday afternoon.
“Current forecasted breakdown of weather system:
1.3 in. of accumulation from 2 a.m. to 12 p.m. Feb. 15.
2.5 in. of accumulation from 4 p.m. Feb. 15 to 2 a.m. Feb. 16.
“Lake effect snow from 5 a.m. Feb. 15 to 3 p.m. Feb. 16 could add an additional 4.5 to 6.5 in. of accumulation for certain areas along the lake. Actual totals and lake effect snow patterns are difficult to predict. Let’s hope this misses us.
“Staff is on alert and ready to respond as needed. Updates will be sent on Feb. 15.”
