After a blizzard brings parts of the Plains to a halt on Monday, snow will reach and accumulate several inches in Chicago on Tuesday.
The same storm bringing a blizzard to places from Amarillo, Texas, to Kansas City, Mo., on Monday will drop 3-6 inches of snow on Chicago Tuesday through Tuesday night.
The good news is that the storm will be slightly weaker when it reaches Chicago, preventing the "Windy City" from facing immobilizing blizzard conditions.
That does not mean that travelers and residents will avoid delays and disruptions.
Tuesday will still be a brisk and cold day in Chicago with the snow potentially reducing visibility enough to lead to flight delays and cancellations. The ripple-effect from problems at the airports in Chicago may then impact airline passengers elsewhere across the United States.
How the snow affects motorists will depend on its intensity.
