Forecast: Brief taste of spring for Chicago area, showers likely tonight
Anyone hoping for a taste of more spring-like weather needs to enjoy today.
Gusty southeast winds and filtered sunshine will push temperatures into the low 50s inland, but the chilly breeze across the lake will keep lakeside areas in the mid-40s.
Showers will become likely tonight as a cold front approaches the region.
A few thunderstorms are also possible as temps fall into the upper 30s. As colder air continues to push into the region a chance for rain and snow showers will continue Wednesday.
A warm up is forecast for Thursday and Friday, but colder air will return for the weekend.
