The National Weather Service says Evanston can expect more snow this morning, and again early Sunday morning — on top of the heavy snowfall that closed schools on Friday.

The weather service says we could get an additional one to three inches of snow today … with another one-to-three early Sunday.

By Sunday night it will turn very cold again, with an overnight low around 8 degrees.

A snow route parking ban was in effect in Evanston overnight and snow emergency parking restrictions will be in place today and Sunday.

Update 10:35 a.m.: If you live in southeast Evanston and didn’t hear the snow emergency siren sound last night or this morning to alert you to the parking bans, well you don’t need to get your ears checked.

City officials this morning say the siren on Fire Station 2 at Madison Street and Custer Avenue has been out of service because of water damage discovered a few days ago.

They’ve now arranged to get a portable siren from Cook County that’s expected to be in place by later today.

  1. Is that why..
    The parking ban was not strictly enforced around there? What gives?! There are several cars that are now
    plowed in with no tickets visible anywhere on them. With the promise of more snow and then cold
    it should be fun to see these drivers try and get their cars out!
