A total accumulation of 4 to 7 inches of snow was expected in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin, the weather service said.

During the evening rush hour, snow fell at a rate of more than an inch an hour. The storm system was following a northeast path, headed to southwest lower Michigan, the weather service said.

Several spinouts on area roadways were reported throughout Lake County.

Northern Cook and DuPage counties were expected to see 2 to 5 inches of snow, while only an inch or two was expected in Chicago, and under an inch in southern Cook County. Kane County was expected to get 3 to 6 inches of snow, according to the weather service.

Meteorologists predict that this latest snowfall also isn't expected to stick around for long and will have melted off by the time temperatures rise into the mid-50s Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures will be in the mid-30s on Saturday, lower 30s on Sunday, then increase to the upper 30s on Monday.
