The Chicago area is set to see a light blanket of snow through Saturday morning with accumulations of up to an inch, and that’s not the only chance of snow this weekend.
Regular snowfall is expected to arrive between 6 p.m. Friday and midnight, according to the National Weather Service.
Flurries will likely persist in northeast Illinois through Saturday morning, but little to no accumulation is expected then, forecasters said.
Most areas will see at least a light dusting of snow, according to the NWS.
Drivers are advised to be careful as slippery spots may develop, especially on bridges and overpasses. The snow is expected to leave the area on Saturday and cold temperatures will set in before the next chance for snowfall.
High temperatures will likely be in the mid-20s on Saturday, according to NBC 5 Storm Team meteorologists.
Sunday will consist of mostly dry conditions before the evening hours – when another round of snow is likely to move in. However, snow accumulations should not exceed an inch.
Dry weather is set to return on Monday with high temperatures in the mid-20s to low-30s.
