Chicago gears up for severe snowfall – Jennifer Delgado reports

From CNN Wires:

The storm sweeps over Chicago Tuesday and is expected to leave 5 to 11 inches of snow, according to the CNN Weather Center. Local hardware stores have put snow blowers, shovels and bags of salt on prominent display.

The winter system will reach the nation's capital Wednesday, bringing either rain or snow to the area before rolling off shore.

One weather model predicts that the snow won't make it that far, said CNN Meteorologist Ivan Cabrera. Another says Washington, Philadelphia and Boston could see a foot of snow.

The D.C. suburb of Alexandria, Virginia, is prepared to deploy 4,000 trucks and snow plows, CNN's Weather Center said.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN's Jen Delgado reports on the latest track of the storm.
