CHICAGO — Lower temperatures and chances of rain and snow — including a wet Monday afternoon — will shake up Chicagoans this week.
Monday is likely to see showers and possibly a thunderstorm before 2 p.m., then a slight chance of showers until 5 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. If thunderstorms hold off, rain will be light and fall at less than a tenth of an inch, according to the weather service. It will hit 54 degrees during the day.
“But don’t be surprised if you see a couple of rumbles of thunder or lightning strikes,” said Lee Carlaw, a National Weather Service metrologist.
Tuesday will be dreary and most cloudy with a few peaks of sunshine and a high near 39 degrees, according to the weather agency.
Wednesday is expected to be dry and mostly cloudy with a high near 37 degrees, according to the weather agency.
Thursday has a chance for rain and snow starting in the afternoon, according to the weather agency. It’ll be cloudy and breezy with highs in the mid-30s.
A “fairly mild” winter weather system is expected to move through the city Friday, Carlaw said. There’s a chance of rain mixed with snow, Carlaw said.
“And even if we do end up seeing a little snow, it won’t have a lot of roadway impact,” Carlaw said.
It’ll be cloudy and blustery Friday, with temperatures likely in the mid- to upper 30 degrees, Carlaw said.
