Snow is expected to over spread over Evanston starting between 10 and 11 tonight, with the heaviest snowfall between midnight and 6 a.m. Friday.

Evanston Streets and Sanitation Superintendent James Maiworm says total snow accumulation is expected to be between 2.5 and 3 inches.

Light snow, flurries and freezing drizzle are expected during the day Friday, with above-freezing temperatures and sunshine over the weekend and rain on Monday.

Maiworm says the city’s Public Works Department will have a full crew on duty overnight clearing main streets and opening up residential streets.

Crews will refocus on main streets just prior to rush hour to have them as clear and passible as the storm allows.

Cleanup operations will continue all day Friday with the focus on clearing residential streets curb to curb.

Based on the forecasted snow amounts and the warming temperatures, Maiworm says, no parking restrictions are expected..
