WATCHING WINTER LIVE — From a few flurries to a shovel-needed event, varying degrees of snow look to be a near daily occurrence over the next week for the Chicago area.

WGN’s Chip Brewster and WPRI meteorologist Steven Matregrano dug a bit into the data in this week’s Watching Winter Live to see what winter may have in store for us all over the next week and beyond.

In the Chicago area at least, the country’s northern jet stream looks to dip south and bring frigid arctic air into the region next week and into February. Pair that with a few low-pressure systems in the outlook and multiple chances for snow start to form.
