SOUTH LOOP — More snow and ice will hit Chicago on Tuesday afternoon.

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect noon to midnight, and the National Weather Service has warned that roads will be slippery and there will be “hazardous conditions [that] will impact the evening commute.”

The storm will drop a mix of rain, freezing rain and snow on the city. One-tenth to two-tenths of an inch of ice will accumulate, according to the advisory, and there could be up to 1 inch of snow.

“Expect slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving,” according to the advisory.

Temperatures are expected to top out at 34 degrees on Tuesday and there will be wind gusts as high as 25 mph, according to the National Weather Service.

More snow and freezing rain are expected Wednesday morning.
