Some early morning snowfall in the Chicago area could cause delays during the morning commute.

The Chicago area should get about half-an-inch of snowfall by 8 a.m., while the northern suburbs should see about an inch, meteorologist Ben Deubelbeiss said.

“The weather is starting to move across the state line and it is going to reduce visibility,” Deubelbeiss said. “Snow on the ground is going to cause slippery conditions, so it is going to impact the morning commute.”

Tuesday’s high temperatures in the metro area should not surpass 29 degrees, Deubelbeiss said. He added that north suburban Waukegan and west suburban Aurora saw the coldest temperate overnight with 14 degrees.

Meteorologists expect the Chicago area to get several inches of snow this weekend.

“It’s something we’re definitely tracking and it may be too early to tell,” he said. “But it looks like it we could get several inches of snow this weekend.”
