CHICAGO — Though Chicago will likely continue to experience some rainy spring weather this week, National Weather Service forecasters said the precipitation could turn to snow by Friday.
The forecast for this week looks to include rain with a chance of thunderstorms until Thursday night, when temperatures are expected to drop and some flurries could blow in.
A cold pocket is expected to move through areas of the Midwest and bring a mix of rain and snow, National Weather Service meteorologist Andrew Krein said.
No snow accumulation is expected, Krein said.
The rain-snow mix could begin overnight Thursday and end by late Friday morning if temperatures cool enough, he said. There could be a brief period when the precipitation is all snow. By Friday afternoon, temperatures are expected to warm to the lower 40s, Krein said.
The brief spot of wintery weather is expected to give way to spring again with highs in the upper 40s and 50s along with more rain for Saturday and Sunday, according to the weather service.
