Light snow is falling again this evening in Evanston and it's expected to increase to moderate snow around 8 p.m.

The National Weather Service says we got about two inches of snow from Friday night to Saturday morning, and James Maiworm of Evanston's Public Works Agency says we should expect another two inches by early Sunday morning.

Temperatures will drop very rapidly late tonight to a low Sunday morning of minus 2 degrees. Strong winds will also accompany the rapidly dropping temperatures and will create blowing and drifting snow.

The weather service has issued a wind chill advisory in effect until 10 a.m. Monday morning

And Maiworm says that because of the low temperatures and blowing snow, roads maybe slippery in the early morning hours.

Public Works crews are on alert, Maiworm says, and will be treating the roads when conditions require.

He adds that a snow route parking ban is possible Sunday night to allow for sufficient cleanup of main roads in the city.
