Chicago is about to make a dent in its snowfall deficit, with the latest forecasts calling for 2 to 4 inches of accumulation in the city in the first significant weather event of 2023.

The National Weather Service is tracking a storm set to hit late Tuesday, with peak snowfall during the commute Wednesday morning. The largest snow totals are expected east of I-55 and south of I-80, although forecasters say a winter weather warning could be extended north toward Chicago.

Lake-effect snow could continue throughout Wednesday.

Aside from a deep freeze in late December, it’s been a quiet winter on the weather front. To date, Chicago has only recorded 5 inches of snow, more than 10 inches below normal. The fleet of idle snowplows didn’t have much to do organize a naming contest.

Here are the current forecasts.
