Cook, DuPage and Lake counties in Illinois were also under a Winter Weather Advisory, beginning at 6 p.m. Both advisories were scheduled to expire at midnight.
Rain begins to develop across the area as the afternoon rush hour begins.
Northern and western suburbs will begin seeing a rain-snow mix or simply all snow by the evening hours.
This mix of rain and sleet will become all snow as it moves east across the metro area during the evening and may be moderate at times.
The snow will continue to fall particularly in areas north and west of Chicago through the evening hours.
It will begin moving out by 11 p.m. for some far west and northern areas.
Snow tapers off from south to north around midnight or 1 a.m.
Anywhere from a dusting to near 3 inches of snow is possible, though heavier totals will likely be seen in areas north and west of the city and toward the state line.
