CHICAGO — Chicago woke up to snow — and slippery roads — Wednesday, and more is expected Thursday.

Peak snowfall is expected through 10 a.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. Some areas will see 2-4 inches, with snow falling about a half-inch per hour until then.

Chicagoans should put aside a little extra time for their morning commutes, with roads getting slushy and visibility at less than a half-mile at times.

Slippery roads could continue through the evening, according to the weather agency.

Snowfall will significantly ease Wednesday afternoon, but the city will still see some intermittent showers, according to the National Weather Service. That snow will likely melt as fast as it falls.

Scattered snow showers Thursday could bring another inch, and there’s a likely chance of minor snowfall Friday, according to the weather service.
