CHICAGO (CBS) – Technically, it is now spring, but this being Chicago, it should come as no surprise that winter weather will make a return in the coming days.
CBS 2 Meteorologist Megan Glaros says more rain is expected during the day on Wednesday, with temperatures starting out in the high 30 and low 40s. The first round of rain has moved out of the area, but another round is coming, and accompanying it will be much colder air.
Thus, snow enters the forecast Wednesday night as temperatures drop to 29 degrees. Conditions will be cloudy with a 40 percent chance of snow showers overnight, and wind gusts of up to 30 mph in the early evening.
Then for the coming week, you’ll need to press your winter coat into service again because temperatures will be stuck in the 20s and 30s.
Conditions will be clearer on Thursday, but the high will top out at only 35. There is a chance of snow on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
And the temperatures will not be rising above the 30s anytime soon. The high for Friday and Saturday is 34, for Sunday 36, for Monday 37, and for Tuesday, 35. On Tuesday night next week, the low drops to a February-like temperature of 25 degrees.
