The Chicago area could see snow again this weekend – and this time, it could be close to 4 inches.

The Chicago Weather Center says the snow could begin Saturday afternoon and stretch into Sunday morning.  A second surge is also expected later Sunday into Monday.

From the Weather Center:

The initial National Weather Service outlook graphic for projected snowfall from 6 p.m. Saturday to 6 p.m. Sunday has the Chicago area included in the southern portion of a 10 to 40% chance of 4-inches or more. Additional snow may fall the following 24-hour period 6 p.m. Sunday to 6 p.m. Monday as the eastward-moving center of low pressure passes overhead.


The Weather Center stresses the storm system is still in its “formative stages, but individuals planning travel over the next few days into the first part of next week should closely monitor upcoming forecasts.”
