Snow that forecasters had expected to start falling by 3 p.m. still hasn't arrived yet.
But Evanston Streets and Sanitation Superintendent James Maiworm says it's still on the way.
Dry air has limited the early light snow and flurries in the area, which now may not arrive until around midnight.
Forecast projections indicate that the first inch of snow should be down by 8 a.m. Tuesday.
Steady snow begins after that and becomes heavy after 10 a.m. Snowfall rates can reach one to two inches per hour for periods of time.
