CHICAGO --This evening’s quick burst of snow brought only an inch or two to most of the Chicago area but its timing was such that is created a horrendous evening commute. Conditions will temporarily improve as the snow ends, though some light freezing drizzle could develop later tonight. Visibilities are improving as the snow ends.
Another clipper system will reach the Chicago area Wednesday and could bring another period of snow. Accumulations could be in the 1-3 inch range and this time it appears that the snow would target the south portions of the Chicago area.
