Sunny Skies, Warm Temperatures Continue

CHICAGO (CBS) — Temperatures will remain above average Thursday, and unlike this time last year, there won’t be a flake of snow in sight.

As of 11 a.m., temperatures were in the mid- to upper 30s across the Chicago area with dry and sunny skies. The forecast high for the day is 48 degrees.

A ridge of high pressure is hovering to the southwest, keeping conditions warm and pleasant.

On Friday, look for a high of 47 degrees with mostly sunny skies.

But over the weekend, a low pressure system will cool the temperature down and bring rain on Saturday. As the temperature drops to 32 on Saturday night, the rain could turn into a modest amount of snow.

But we have no business complaining about a modest amount of snow. On this very same day last year, we had 21.2 inches of it on the ground.
