It's time to get those shovels ready.
Chicago's snow-less streak is expected to end Thursday with a storm that could drop six to 12 inches of snow on the Midwest, according to the Chicago Tribune.
It's unclear at this point which areas will see the most snow but "current models suggest the heaviest snowfall will land to the west of Chicago, from northern Missouri through eastern Iowa, up into Wisconsin," according to the Tribune.
The snow has been a long-time coming this winter season. On Sunday, Chicago surpassed the record for latest first measurable snowfall, according to the National Weather Service. The old record was set on Dec. 16, 1965.
