Snow near-record warmth Chicago weather roller coaster coming days

Chicago area set for roller coaster weather with light snow and rapid warm-up expected over the weekend. Stay tuned for updates!

Get ready for a wild ride in the Chicago area over the next few days, with a mix of snow and rapid temperature changes on the horizon.

On Friday, a system will move in, bringing temperatures down from the 40s to the 30s and some precipitation. Snow is expected near the Wisconsin-Illinois state line, while mixed precipitation and rain are expected further south.

As the day goes on, the snow could spread further south, but significant accumulation is unlikely. There's also uncertainty about the impact of a lake-effect snow band near Lake Michigan's western shore, extending south along the Illinois-Indiana border.

Saturday will bring chilly conditions, with highs in the 30s. But the cold won't last long - by Sunday, temperatures are expected to soar back into the mid-50s across the area.

The warm-up will continue into Monday, with temperatures reaching the 60s and potentially breaking records in Chicago. Tuesday will be even warmer, with readings in the mid-to-upper 60s, but there's a chance of rain.

Rain will stick around through Wednesday, with the possibility of mixed precipitation as another front moves through. After that, temperatures are expected to be in the mid-to-upper 40s.
