Light snow is expected to develop Friday evening.
The snow likely won't result in much accumulation but could bring a dusting to areas mainly along the Illinois-Wisconsin border.
Spotty showers begin Saturday afternoon, though with temps warming up, this is likely to develop as a rain-snow mix.
That rain-snow mix is expected to develop into more moderate snow during the overnight hours and into Sunday morning.
By early Sunday morning, snow will cover much of the Chicago area. There is a chance for some lake effect showers and winds turn off the lake Sunday morning, which could bring additional accumulation along the lakefront.
The system is expected to move out by Sunday evening, heading into northwest Indiana.
At the end of the two-day system, totals could range anywhere from 2-5 inches in the Chicago area, according to the global forecast models.
European models predict fewer totals by Sunday evening, though some spots could still see up to 5 inches, particularly in far northern counties.
The snow is expected to return Monday evening and continue into Tuesday morning. Another system will bring some accumulation by Tuesday evening as well.
