If the National Weather Service's forecast holds true, we're going to wake tomorrow to anywhere from two to four inches of snow.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for DuPage and Will County starting at midnight, which is when the white stuff is to start falling, and ending at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Should make for a lovely morning rush-hour commute.

The most intense part of the storm will be between 4 and 8 a.m. for north central Illinois and the Chicago suburbs, according to the most recent forecast.

Also, "very cold temperatures will make regular non-treated road salt less effective," the weather service said.

Tonight's low will be 11 degrees, relatively balmy compared to the 5-below low expected Wednesday night. The good news is we'll have to endure just one more night in the teens before things start to get closer to the freezing point during the day on Friday and Saturday.
