The National Weather Service says another snow storm will arrive in Evanston early this evening.

It’s expected to drop two to four inches on the city by noon tomorrow, and snowfall amounts could be heavier near the lake.

A winter weather advisory will be in effect from 6 p.m. tonight until noon tomorrow.

Northerly winds at 20 to 25 miles per hour are expected to cause blowing snow and reduced visibility.

Update 4:54 p.m.: Evanston’s assistant public works director, James Maiworm, says that with the lake-effect impact, our total snow is likely to be four to five inches.

Public works crews have spent the day anti-icing the main and secondary streets, Maiworm says, and crews are on standby to begin plowing and salting.

Should the expected accumulations occur, Maiworm says, it’s likely a snow route parking ban and snow emergency will be declared.
