CHICAGO -- Chicagoans may not be ready for the first snowfall, but the city is.

The Department of Streets and Sanitation commissioner says the city has over 200 plows ready to hit the streets, once the storm starts later tonight.

As usual, they will focus on main streets before addressing side streets.

Chicago has over 300,000 pounds of salt in storage, which is expected to be enough to get through the entire winter.

The city wants to remind residents that the fine for not shoveling sidewalks has gone up, from $50 to $500.

Some good news, the winter parking ban is not in effect yet.

That won't happen until December 1.
