A little ‘lake effect’ may be on the way


The private forecaster used by Evanston’s Public Works Agency says we could get up to six-tenths of an inch of lake effect snow between mid-afternoon today and early Saturday morning.

Streets Supervisor Edgar Cano says other forecasters are estimating the snow won’t start until this evening and will stay south of Chicago.

In any case, the Public Works Agency is on alert and monitoring the event, Cano says.

Looking further ahead, we could get as much as two inches of snow from a storm starting Sunday evening and running through Monday afternoon.
