The winter storm that rumbled across the Chicago area Monday dumped nearly 8 inches of snow in places, but much of that could be gone by the end of the week as southerly winds bring a brief thaw.

Today’s temperatures will break above freezing for the first time in nearly three weeks.  By Thursday, we could see temperatures in the upper 40s.  One model has some southern suburbs touching 50 degrees — the first time that has happened since Dec. 28, according to the Chicago Weather Center.

The southerly winds are also expected to being showers and some thunderstorms on Thursday, adding to the snow melt and raising the danger of flooding.
