    On the heels of the cold front that arrived Monday, an Alberta Clipper will spread snow from the Dakotas to the Great Lakes on Tuesday.

    Chicago lies in the path of this clipper, and should see the snow fall through Tuesday.

    The snow will generally amount to a coating to an inch, which is enough to cause some slick spots on area interstates and highways for commuters.

    Farther to the north across Wisconsin is where the clipper will drop 1-3 inches, leading to more disruptions to travel and daily routines.

    Wednesday will provide a break for the city before more snow returns Thursday and Friday.
