For the Chicagoans who haven't given up on their New Year's resolution to exercise more often, they'll have a chance to march to work in the morning.

The National Weather Service (NWS) estimates 7 to 11 inches of snow overnight starting on Jan. 20, MLK Day evening leading into Tues., Jan. 21. Wind chills on Monday night are about 20 mph with gusts as high as 30 mph, slowing down to 15 to 20 mph on Tuesday morning with a wind chill factor at 11 degrees below zero.

Snow could consistently fall all week, and temperatures may stay below 20 degrees until Fri., Jan. 24, according to NWS.

As of Mon. night, there are no extended hours for warming centers on the City of Chicago website, but click here for warming center locations for seniors and the homeless. Department of Family & Support Services (DFSS) warming centers are not open on weekday holidays so some locations may have been inaccessible due to the federal holiday. Call 311 for further details on open locations.
