Weekend forecast: More snow coming, temps warm-up then fall again
The cold keeps coming and more snow is on the way as well.
Strong southwest winds will not only bring wind chills of -5 to -25 degrees today, but blowing and drifting snow may cause problems on the roadways as well. Our temperatures will gradually rise into the mid-20s later this evening, but around the time our temps peak snow is expected to spread across Chicagoland.
Light snow is forecast to continue overnight with accumulations of 1-3 inches possible. The snow will come to an end as cold front sweeps through the area, knocking our temperatures down once again. We’ll be partly cloudy, windy and cold Saturday as our temperatures fall into the lower teens and upper single digits by the late afternoon.
More snow is likely Sunday. Accumulations of 2-4 inches are possible as we are once again breezy with highs near 23 degrees. Much colder air is expected at the beginning of next week.
