Jan 08, 2016 11:43AM ● Published by Shannon Antinori
The Chicago-area’s relatively mild winter weather will come to an end this weekend, as rain and fog give way to snow and colder temperatures.
The National Weather Service is predicting light rain, drizzle and fog on Friday, with highs in the upper 30s to mid-40s.
Accumulating snow is expected late Saturday afternoon into Saturday night, with the possibility of several inches of snow. Area motorists should be cautious, as strong northwesterly winds could cause blowing and drifting snow on Saturday night, the NWS said. Snow could begin after 3 p.m. Saturday.
The NWS predicts a 20 percent chance of snow on Sunday morning, with winds of 25 to 35 mph.
Temperatures will continue to drop, with a high of just 15 to 25 degrees on Sunday afternoon, dropping to 3 to 9 degrees on Sunday night.
Wind chills of 10 to 15 below zero are possible Monday morning, with a chance of snow throughout the day Monday.
