For much of the area, it may start as rain before transitioning over to snow around midday, with potential for heavy snow during the evening commute.

The track of the storm remains uncertain. Some areas may get mostly rain and end up with only one or two inches of snow. Other areas could see around three to six inches of heavy, wet snow.

The winter storm will impact travel on Friday, with wet slick roads and high winds.

Chicago saw only 3.7 inches of snow last February, well below the average February of 10.7 inches.
