Weather forecasters are calling for a snowy start to the new year as anywhere from 2 to 4 inches could fall on the suburbs Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
Snow is expected to start falling Tuesday afternoon and end sometime Wednesday night, according to AccuWeather.
Tuesday's high is projected to reach 14 degrees with periods of sun and light wind. The evening low is forecast at 12 degrees. The windchill factor, however, will make it feel even more frigid outside.
New Year's Day should see temperatures rise to a high of 22 degrees, but with that will come with snow and a low of 18, AccuWeather forecasters say. Snow or flurries are expected Thursday, with a high of 22 degrees and a low of 4.
The cold air will not last all week. A high of 32 degrees is forecast for Saturday and Sunday.
