Chicago typically starts getting measurable snow around December 7th, but we could be getting the first real snow of the season tonight, and the snowflakes could very well fall throughout the rest of the week.
According to the National Weather Service, we’re set to have an extra cold snap with temperatures in the 20s and 30s. Starting tonight, there’s a 50 percent chance of snow overnight, most likely starting early in the morning at 4 AM.
Snow is expected to last through Tuesday morning before it turns into a mix of snow and rain later. Overall, it could be less than a half-inch of snow. Sure it’s the first official show but is it staying long? Well, the snow and rain could continue overnight into Wednesday.
Wednesday snow showers are expected to start also around noon with temps warming up to 40 degrees with snow expected overnight.
Thursday sees snow throughout the day with cloudy weather and temps staying around 33 degrees. Luckily, the snow breaks on Friday but temps stay cold at 26 degrees, with sunny conditions. There could be snow throughout the weekend with temperatures staying between 28 to 32 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
