Light snow arriving in Evanston

Evanston city officials say light snow and flurries are currently falling in the city and will increase in intensity this afternoon.

Total snow amount today should range from a half inch to an maximum of one inch. Most of the accumulating snow should end by 10:30 p.m. with some lingering flurries and snow showers overnight.

Streets and Sanitation Superintendent James Maiworm says public works crews are on the streets applying liquid salt brine to de-ice and anti-ice the streets. Street crews will be focusing on the main snow route first. Crews will be treating downtown sidewalks and recreation centers as well.

Public works will have a crew over night to treat any additional slippery spots and to treat any residential streets that require it, Maiworm says.
