CHICAGO — The first sticking snow of the season has come for Chicago.

Gusts of snow brushed through the region early Tuesday morning and will continue into Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Slow commutes are expected Tuesday morning as snow sticks to surfaces and some roads turn slick and slushy, according to the weather service.

By Tuesday night, parts of Chicago could see 3 to 5 inches of snow due to the lake effect, according to the weather service.

Bursts of snow showers are expected Wednesday into the evening, according to the weather service.
