The next few days could look more like winter in the Chicago area, with snow and possible freezing temperatures – NBC Chicago

While the Chicago area is days away from spring, the next few days will potentially look more like winter, with scattered snow showers possible on Friday and freezing temperatures expected over the weekend.

Late Thursday and Friday, the scattered rains that fell across the region will begin to subside, resulting in generally dry overnight conditions, according to NBC 5 Storm team meteorologist Paul Deanno.

This weather pattern will continue through Friday, although cold temperatures and gusty winds are expected throughout the day.

Another round of scattered showers will be possible on Friday afternoon, with a weather system expected to move through the region. In the evening, any heavier showers or squalls could generate snowfall, although these snow showers are widely dispersed.

The weekend should see dry conditions, but well below average temperatures are expected on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday will see windy conditions and temperatures will struggle to break out of the 30s, with northern areas recording highs in the upper 30s and other places potentially reaching highs in the 40s.

Winds are expected to ease on Sunday, but temperatures will remain cold, with highs again in the 30s and 40s.
