We’ve been treated to a warm week of weather but snow is predicted to return next week.
Tuesday’s high of 69 degrees high went on record as the joint-warmest March 9, matched only by the 69 degrees set back in 1974, according to the National Weather Service. The sunny spells of this week have hinted at Spring’s coming arrival but it looks as though Chicago may just get one last taste of winter with this week’s 60-degree temperatures set to cool to the low 40-degrees from Friday onwards.
The National Weather Service is predicting a breezy weekend with precipitation likely from Sunday and a good chance of snow early next week. From Monday, temperatures are predicted to stay in the mid-30s with snow likely on both Monday and Tuesday.
A Pacific storm will shift across the Southwest tomorrow and potentially turn into a “major winter storm” for some states. Chicago and the Midwest are unlikely to be affected but mild to heavy rainfall is expected across the state.
