Ahead of a series of Chicago-area snow systems that could bring some of the largest snowfall totals of the season, a Winter Weather Advisory for Cook County has been issued, starting at midnight Saturday until 3 p.m. Sunday.
Temperatures Saturday could reach the mid- to upper-30s ahead of scattered light rain or rain mixed with snow showers in the afternoon.
Saturday night could see a chance for light snow beginning in the evening.
Temperature highs are expected to top out in the upper-20s Sunday as a cold front approaches with more light snow coupled with lake-effect snow showers into the evening.
By Sunday afternoon the Chicago area will dry up for a brief period. Monday is then expected to be partly sunny and again could see the chance for light snow during the afternoon and evening hours.
At the end of the two days, totals will likely be between 1 and 3 inches inland and 2 and 4 inches along the lakefront.
It remains unclear exactly how much snow these waves will dump on the Chicago area, but NBC 5 Storm Team meteorologists advise watching forecasts throughout the weekend and next week as conditions develop.
