Snow could begin in the suburbs today just as workers are heading home for the weekend.

The area could get 2 to 4 inches through early Saturday, meteorologists at the Chicago office of the National Weather Service say.

A winter weather advisory will be in effect from 4 p.m. today to 6 a.m. Saturday.

Ice accumulations of one tenth of an inch are possible.

Wind gusts of up to 30 mph during the storm could hamper travel and worsen road conditions, forecasters warned.

Saturday's high temperature is forecast at 36 degrees, but Sunday's top temperature will be 11 degrees.

Temperatures won't go above freezing again until Wednesday, the agency says.
