CHICAGO (AP) — Residents of northern Illinois may ring in the new year with heavy boots and snow shovels. Forecasters say significant snowfall is expected in northern Illinois on New Year's Eve, starting in the afternoon and continuing through the night.

The National Weather Service predicts three to five inches of snow starting Tuesday afternoon in much of northern Illinois. A winter weather advisory from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning affects Rockford, DeKalb, Chicago and other cities north of U.S. Route 30.

Slick and snow-covered roads are expected to make travel hazardous. Visibility may be limited.
