After weeks of lower-than-average temperatures, Chicago residents are finally getting a much needed warm up.
Friday’s predicted 43-degree high would be the Chicago area’s warmest in the nearly two weeks. And that’s just a preview of what’s to come.
A drop in temperatures, along with the possibility of snowfall, is expected Saturday morning. But then, west to southwest winds return and grow stronger Sunday afternoon and Monday. It’s during this period the area’s mildest temps in weeks are a real possibility.
“Monday could see the year’s first 50-degree temperature,” said WGN-TV Chief Meteorologist Tom Skilling.
