Get out those shovels.

After Midwesterners were treated to a warmer-than-usual fall, winter is here, and the first snowstorm of the year is on its way.

Meteorologist Charles Mott of the said a winter weather advisory will be in effect for 24 hours, starting at midnight.

After this week's light dusting of snow, residents can expect to see even more of the white stuff, he added.

 "We're looking at about three to five inches," Mott said.

The advisory is in effect for areas including Will, DuPage, Kendall, LaSalle, Kankakee and Grundy counties, with snow expected to begin just before midnight in the western and northwestern counties, moving east before it hits the Chicago area between 1 and 3 a.m.

Snow-covered roads and diminished visibility could make for dangerous driving. With possible accumulations of up to an inch per hour during the height of the storm, the National Weather Service is urging motorists to use caution.

The advisory is in effect until midnight Dec. 5, Mott said.
