With up to four inches of snow predicted to fall during rush hour, the National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory in effect until midnight Thursday, Feb. 7.
Rain is expected to gradually change to heavy, wet snow during the evening, reducing visibility and slowing travel during the evening commute, according to the National Weather Service.
Between one and two inches of snow are expected to fall in Evanston, according to director of streets and sanitation Jim Maiworm. Snow is expected to be heaviest until 8 p.m., tapering off into flurries later, he said.
The city is bringing in extra crews to plow and salt the streets this evening.
