Chicago area says goodbye to spring-like weather

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Chicagoland’s spring-like weather is now just a memory.

After topping out at 63 degrees Tuesday our temperatures will gradually fall through the day Wednesday.

As our temperatures tumble light morning rain showers will transition into a wintry mix around midday, before changing to all snow during the afternoon.  Any snow accumulations are expected to be light with 1-3 inches a possibility.

The biggest issue with temperatures falling below 32 degrees could be the freezing of untreated surfaces still wet from heavy recent rains.  Caution is advised as slick and icy conditions could be a problem later today and tonight.

Though brief, our latest blast of cold air is expected to pack quite a wallop.  Thursday’s temperatures aren’t expected to move much.  The forecast calls for morning temps in the lower teens, with highs in the upper teens.

Friday morning looks like it will be the coldest of the next 7 days as temperatures drop to around zero.  Breezy conditions will drop Friday mornings wind chills to 10-15 below zero.  Highs Friday are only expected to reach the lower teens before we see a new chance for snow Friday night into Saturday.  Snow accumulations could reach a couple of inches.
