LOGAN SQUARE — Chicago could get another 3 inches of snow starting Thursday night.

It’ll be a chilly day with a high of just 45 degrees Thursday, and rain and snow are expected to start in the evening, according to the National Weather Service. The storm will last into Friday morning and could dump 1-3 inches of snow on Chicago.

The snow will start about 10 p.m. and could through 10 a.m. Friday, with the heaviest snowfall expected in the early morning.

And Friday will get even colder, with an expected high of 42 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

This weekend will warm up, though, with sun and 50-degree weather expected Saturday and Sunday.

The snow might feel out of season (it is spring, after all), but it’s not too uncommon for Chicago. The average last date for a trace or more of snowfall here is April 20, while the latest Chicago has gotten a measurable amount of snow was May 11 in 1966.

The latest Chicago has seen any kind of snow was June 2 in 1910.
