Updates to the forecasts now suggest Evanston will get around four inches of snow — instead of seven — from the storm that’s now underway.

The National Weather Service says a winter weather advisory remains in effect from 8 p.m. Tuesday until 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The weather service says roads will be slippery during the morning and evening commutes on Wednesday.

Edgar Cano of Evanston’s Public Works Agency says the city’s private forecasters have downgraded the expected impact of the storm here from around seven inches they were forecasting Tuesday morning to around four inches.

That’s within the range of two to five inches forecast by the National Weather Service — which says the storm is likely to drop more snow in the metro area to the south of Evanston.
