    Here it comes again.

    A second wave of lake-effect snow is expected to hit Chicago beginning this this evening and should continue through the night.

    The area could see from three to five inches by Thursday morning. Some areas in Northwest Indiana could see up to a foot.

    Cook County is under a lake effect snow advisory until noon Thursday.  The snow will come from a low pressure system moving across the lake from Michigan.
