Snow plows are on the roads around Evanston this morning as the city receives the first of at least two waves of snow we’re expected to see over the next couple of days.

The National Weather Service says we may get a couple of inches of snow from the band of snow that’s falling now. It’s expected to end by 3 p.m. today, with temperatures falling from 31 degrees now to about 14 by 4 p.m.

Update 10 a.m.: Edgar Cano, public services bureau chief for the city, says crews are out on patrol, plowing and spreading as needed.

He says he doesn’t currently anticipate a need for any snow-related parking restrictions as a result of the storm.

There’s a chance of snow overnight tonight, with temperatures falling to almost zero and wind gusts of up to 25 miles per hour.

Then on Monday we may get another 1 to three inches of snow mainly after 3 p.m.
