This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Despite Monday’s seasonably mild temperatures, a major wintry dose is expected to sock the Chicago area Tuesday.

A strong low pressure system from the Southern Plains is forecast to move though the Ohio Valley to the lower Great Lakes on a historically favorable track to bring the city a significant snowfall.

Clouds roll in Monday night as gusty winds increase, setting the stage for the onset of wintry precipitation early Tuesday.

Precipitation may start as a wintry mix of rain, sleet or snow, but it is expected to transition to all snow by afternoon or evening as temperatures cool.

Snow accumulations will hinge how quickly the transition to snow occurs, but the potential exists for the city’s biggest snowfall of the season.

At this time, three to seven inches of snow is expected to fall over the area on Tuesday. Most of the snow is expected to fall between 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.

    won't play for Moi. I'm still expecting this season will see the least amount of snow we've had in years in the windy city. Yes, I'm daring Mother Nature to prove me wrong! A couple inches here and there, hey, that's nothing! Not a happy polar bear in sight! Hey, we can't build snow forts it's fine by me! The only people hurting by this limited snow fall are the snow plow drivers. I feel for you folks. I used to work for a pool company going out and fiberglassing new walls and floors for them. Seasonal job, four months out of the year, and if it rained, no work! We traveled all over the USA. However still watched Tom Skilling to get the best updates whether it was gonna be a workday or a day spent in a hotel room with cheap beer and sandwhiches and chips, cards and cable TV.
