CHICAGO — The city will get its first real snow of the season this week.

The week will start sunny but chilly for Chicago, with Monday expected to only get as warm as 40 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

A mix of rain and snow will likely hit after 3 a.m. Tuesday and continue throughout the morning, according to the National Weather Service. It’ll get increasingly cloudier, with up to a half-inch of snow accumulating.

The snow should fade by noon Tuesday, though the rain will continue. The day is expected to top out at 43 degrees and have wind gusts up to 25 mph.

Wednesday will see the rain continue, and thunderstorms could form in the afternoon. It’ll be warmer, though, with a high of 52 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Thursday, when many people will celebrate Thanksgiving, will see the rain stop, though the day is expected to be mostly cloudy. It’s expected to get as warm as 50 degrees.

Friday will see more of the same weather, with a high of 50 degrees and the skies partly sunny.
