CHICAGO (CBS) – It’s looking like a messy week of weather for the Chicago area, with more rain likely on and off Tuesday, severe thunderstorms possible Wednesday, and even some snow possible Wednesday night into Thursday.

CBS 2 Meteorologist Megan Glaros reports scattered showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday.

A warm front moving across the area will have temperatures rising into the high 50s on the South Side and south of the city, but on the North Side and north of the city, temperatures could stay in the 40s.

That warm front will also bring rain to the area, with the heaviest precipitation in the northern suburbs and near the Wisconsin border.

On Wednesday, those showers could turn into severe thunderstorms as a cold front moves in, bringing colder temperatures as well.

That cold front could also bring a rain-snow mix Wednesday night into Thursday, but the snow is not likely to stick, as temperatures probably won’t drop below freezing.

The good news is, once that cold front moves in, the weekend is looking dry and warmer, with temperatures rising back into the 50s on Sunday.
