Get ready for more snow and cold, Chicago!

The Windy City is about to be hit by a clipper system on Saturday that could bring as much as 5 inches to some parts of the Chicago area and between 2 and 4 inches to others, according to NBC Chicago.

Ahead of that, more light snowfall is expected Friday afternoon, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

That's on top of the 35 inches of snow that have fallen so far this season in Chicago -- an amount that already makes for the city's seventh-snowiest season since 1884, according to the Chicago Weather Center.

The above-average snowfall has meant the city has spent $11.2 million on snow removal since Dec. 31 through last week -- more than half the city's 2014 snow removal budget.

Meanwhile, some Chiberia-esque temperatures are expected to return to the area next week, when high temperatures struggle to get into the double digits on Tuesday, the Sun-Times reports.

At least winter is now more than half over!
