The National Weather Service says we’re expected to get some snow overnight that could have an impact on the Wednesday morning commute.

Jim Maiworm of Evanston’s Public Works Agency says “a short burst of moderate snow is expected to occur around the morning rush hour and may cause a few slick spots.”


Initially, Maiworm says the snow is not expected to accumulate because the ground is warm and pavement temperatures are expected to remain above freezing. However, at sunrise a short 2 to 3 hour window of moderate to possibly heavy snowfall rates may create some slick spots on pavement.

He says a Public Works crew will be on standby overnight to monitor road conditions and will begin operations as conditions require.
