While isolated snow showers and quick bursts of snow will persist through Friday afternoon and evening, complicated by gusting winds blowing snow around, a more sustained snowstorm is moving into the area Saturday morning, ABC7 Meteorologist Larry Mowry said.
Most parts of the area will see snow develop in the mid- to late-morning. Then, Mowry said, it will mainly concentrate across the northern suburbs.

Snow totals will range from 1 to 2 inches south of the city to 2 to 4 inches north. Along the Wisconsin state line, there’s a chance some areas could see 3 to 6 inches, Mowry said.
Mowry said there is also some lake effect that could impact the city Saturday night into Sunday morning, which could push snow totals for the city a little higher overnight.
