And you thought highs near 40 Tuesday would bring a break in Evanston's nasty weather! But no. We're gonna get some snow, some freezing rain and some plain old rain as the day progresses.

Assistant Public Works Director James Maiworm says snow is expected to start falling around 3 a.m. Tuesday, dropping around a half inch on us before it changes to freezing rain about 8 a.m., followed by just light rain after noon 

Maiworm says a light glaze of ice is possible on the roads before the pavement temperatures warm.
