CHICAGO (CBS) — We know, we know, you’ve heard this before. Temperatures will get a bit better this weekend, but as has become a seemingly constant refrain this winter, we’ll also see a fresh round of snow.
CBS 2 Meteorologist Ed Curran reports, while temperatures will drop to about 2 degrees overnight, the mercury should rise to a high of about 20 on Friday, and then 23 on Saturday.
That might be a relative relief compared to the single digits we’re seeing most of today, it’s still well below the high 30s and low 40s typical for this time of year.
Friday also will bring about an inch of snow during the evening, followed by 1 to 4 inches Saturday evening.
Sunday is a bit of a wild card. Some forecast models show heavy snow passing well to the south of the Chicago area, but another one shows the same snow storm passing right through the heart of the city.
If you’re hoping for a warmup with the arrival of March, don’t expect anything better than the teens or 20s for high temperatures through the middle of next week.
