On President’s Day, we all got a glimpse of Spring. Yesterday, we felt an almost 50 degree temperature change with the wind chill. Now we can expect a “significant winter storm” bringing as much as four or five inches of snow to parts of the Chicago area late Thursday and early Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

Now that it’s getting colder again, don’t forget about taking extra care of your pets. Also, prepare for a lot of shoveling, insane traffic times, and many excuses to drink hot chocolate. Also, if you start getting major cabin fever, here are some tips to occupy your time.

No snow is expected today, but flurries could be in the area just after midnight on Thursday. When the storm narrows in on Chicago in the evening on Thursday, there could be snow with a chance of sleet, changing to snow and a chance of light freezing rain after midnight.

The weather service says that “several inches of accumulation” are possible throughout the area. Snowfall amounts are expected to range from as little as 2 to 3 inches across northwest Indiana to as much as 4 or 5 inches across north central Illinois.

Remember the snow storm of 2011? It’s never too early to start thinking ahead and keep your eye on the weather, traffic, and school closings.
