CHICAGO (TBEN) — Rain chances are coming to an end as a low-pressure area north of Chicago moves further east.
Colder air is moving in at the back of the low, and with some lingering humidity, we expect some passing gusts and light snow showers tonight and tonight.
The lows will be colder in the low 30s, but a west-northwest wind gust will make it feel like the upper teens and low 20s by Friday morning.
Friday windy, cloudy and mostly dry. Cold air continues to move in from the northwest, with maximums around 30 degrees, but chills around 20 degrees. Later in the day there may be some clearance, but until Friday evening it will be mostly cloudy.
Saturday seems to be a pleasant day with more sun and less wind. Partly cloudy skies for Saturday afternoon with maximums around the mid 30’s. Later in the day, clouds will increase ahead of a low pressure area that will move out of the Central Plains.
This new storm system will increase the chance of snow by late evening and scattered snow showers are likely Saturday night through Sunday morning. Amounts of snow can range from 1 to 3 inches, leading to slick travel on Sunday morning. The chance of snow decreases late Sunday. Highs will be around 30.
There will be another storm system next week that could give us another round of measurable snowfall from Tuesday night into Wednesday. Behind this system we expect colder air with peaks returning to 20 degrees by the end of the week.
THIS EVENING: Cloudy skies with light snow and light snow here and there. Low 30°
FRIDAY: Cloudy sky and windy. High 34°, with wind chills in the upper teens and low 20s.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy sky. High 35°
