The first in a series of storm systems will eject out of the western US and move through the Region later on this evening into the overnight bringing a round of downpours and perhaps a few thunderstorms. In the colder air just to our north, a brief period of heavier snow or sleet is possible–mainly to the north and west of Chicago.
Temps will rise through the overnight from the 30s into the 40s and eventually into the low 50s by midday Monday. With the warmer air moving in, fog is likely with patchy drizzle as we head toward daybreak. Any rain and drizzle will turn to just scattered showers before we eventually clear out later Monday.
Another similar storm system will move in Tuesday with a brief period of wet snow possible at the onset before everything changes over to rain.
Looking for that January pattern change that MUST be coming? Look no further than January 2nd. We’ll chat about this throughout our next few posts this week!
