CHICAGO — The North Side got hit with rain that turned into snow early Friday — but it’s not sticking around.

Northern Illinois — including Far North Side neighborhoods such as Rogers Park — saw a dusting of snow in the morning, while it continued to rain and sleet in other parts of the city. The rain and snow are expected to continue in the morning, but it’ll turn into all rain in the afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

Less than a half-inch of snow and sleet are expected to accumulate. The day will also see wind gusts up to 25 mph, and it’ll only warm up to 39 degrees, according to the weather agency.

Saturday is expected to see similarly gray weather: There a chance for drizzle in the morning, then a chance for drizzle and rain in the afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. The day will be cloudy with an expected high temperature of 40 degrees.

Sunday is also expected to be mostly cloudy, though it could warm up to 42 degrees.
