Sunday will end with more snow

An inch or two of wet, heavy snow expected.

A common site Saturday in Evanston -- a hedge bent over by snow blocking a public sidewalk.

It’s relatively mild in Evanston this morning with temperatures near the freezing mark, but we can expect more snow late this afternoon and into the evening.

Edgar Cano of the city’s Public Works Agency, says we’ll probably only get an inch or two of snow from the new storm, but with the warmer temperatures, it “will be a wetter/heavier snow than what we have seen in the last few events.”

Cano says crews have been scheduled to be on duty for the storm and will respond as needed.

Free off-street parking in city garages and some city parking lots will continue through 11:59 p.m. Monday.

High temperatures are expected to be in the mid to upper 30s from Monday through Wednesday, so we should see more snow melting, and the National Weather Service this morning says it expects no hazardous weather for the Chicago area from Monday through Saturday.
