It's time to get those shovels ready.
It's unclear at this point which areas will see the most snow but the story indicates that "current models suggest the heaviest snowfall will land to the west of Chicago, from northern Missouri through eastern Iowa and up into Wisconsin."
Experts are predicting anywhere from one to "several" inches.
Chicago has an 80 percent chance of flurries—especially after 3 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. Snow could continue into the night and temperatures may dip as low as 24 degrees.
The Tribune reports:
Depending on the storm's path, Chicago could get several inches or less than an inch, but it appears the city will get at least the tenth of an inch needed to record the season's first measurable snowfall.
