More Cold Temperatures, Snow on the Way
What's the highest temperature we'll see this week?
It's tough to imagine that a year ago today, the temperature was in the 80s. I don't know about you, but to me, it seems like it's never going to get warm!
Don't expect any warm weather this week. The highest forecast temperature is 40 degrees—with partly sunny skies—on Sunday.
The week is forecast to start out with another blast of winter. The National Weather Service in Chicago says there's a chance of freezing rain and snow, possibly mixed with sleet, on Monday morning. Snow could then fall during the afternoon hours, followed by a slight chance of rain and snow after 4 p.m. There's a 90 percent chance of precipitation, with 1 to 2 inches of snow and sleet accumulation possible.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are expected to be cold, with highs of 30, 22 and 27, respectively—but we'll see some sunshine each day, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures are forecast to warm a little on Friday and the weekend, with highs of 34, 38 and 40 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
