    A snowstorm is set to move across Chicago this week, dumping between 3 and 6 inches on the city.

    The flakes will fall on New Year's Day and Thursday, as high temperatures hover in the lower 20s.

    RealFeel® temperatures will make the city feel even colder. Wednesday, as much as 1 to 3 inches of snow could accumulate on roadways.
