A bit of snow is expected this evening in Evanston with temperatures warming for the Christmas holiday.
James Maiworm of the city’s Public Works Agency says a small crew is on standby in case the weather turns out to be worse than expected.
But the forecast calls for no more than a third of an inch of snow by 10 p.m. tonight, possibly mixed with rain. Temperatures will likely stay above freezing and little if any accumulation on pavement is expected. Some light freezing drizzle may occur after 10 p.m.
The national weather service says we’ll have patchy fog to start Saturday and it will then become partly sunny with a highe of 37 degrees.
Christmas day there’s a chance of rain and freezing drizzle with areas of fog along with a high temperature of 42 degrees.
