DOWNTOWN — Chicago could see its first snow of the season this weekend.
The city will see 70- and 60-degree days Thursday and Friday, but by Saturday temperatures will fall to the low 40s, said AccuWeather meteorologist Tom Kines. Chicago could also get snow flurries and a 20-30 mph wind during the morning Saturday.
“With the wind blowing, it’s going to feel like it’s in the 20s, so that’ll be a big shock, comparing Thursday to Saturday,” Kines said. "Definitely a big change, temperature-wise, coming up ... ."
The snow shouldn't amount to anything, Kines said, and it's unlikely Chicago will see any significant snow in the near future.
It's not unusual to get flurries this time of year, Kines said, though this November has been an average of 9 degrees warmer than normal in Chicago.
"If you thought it was warm, you're absolutely right. ... I think [the flurries will] just remind us that it is November and it can snow in the month of November," Kines said. "At this point in time, we don't envision any snow problems in the next seven or eight days."
Sunday shouldn't have snow, but the day will "blustery" with a high temperature in the 40s, Kines said.
