CHICAGO (CBS) — Portions of the Chicago area are expected to see a light blanket of snow on Thursday.

The most significant accumulations will be in the south suburbs and northwest Indiana, with one inch of snow possible.

Models from the National Weather Service showed up to three inches in some locations well south of the city. However, it appears that most of the Chicago area will not see that accumulation.

Residents on the South Side of Chicago may see about an inch, or less.

The snow is expected to start falling on Thursday morning and last though the afternoon.

The snow will cover roadways and create the potential of hazardous driving conditions.

In Southern Illinois, the weather service has issued storm warnings and up to six inches are possible.
