The National Weather Service says Evanston may get six inches or more of snow from “a quick-moving winter storm” that will arrive tonight.

The snowfall is expected to diminish by Monday morning but a mix of light snow and drizzle or freezing drizzle is expected to continue through Monday afternoon.

After that, it’s back into the deep freeze with extreme cold temperatures expected through Thursday.

City crews have been kept busy so far this weekend cleaning up after a couple of light snowfalls on Friday and Saturday.

Update 9:25 a.m.: Edgar Cano of the city’s Public Works Agency says flurries should enter the area as early as 7 p.m. with the majority of snow falling between 9 p.m. and 8 a.m. Monday.

And there’s potential of blowing and drifting snow for Monday night into Tuesday. 

Cano says crews are on alert and have been scheduled for snow and ice operations.

  1. Please shovel your sidewalk
    Please shovel your sidewalk and put down salt. I don’t like slipping on an icy sidewalk.

    And if you aren’t able to shovel, call 311 for a list of volunteers. I would be happy to shovel someone’s sidewalk.
