After a dusting to an inch of snow last night (slightly higher amounts near Illinois) we have seen the sunshine return to melt it all away again. Clouds roll back in tonight on a southerly wind to help blanket temperatures in the low 30s.
Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a storm system passing to our south and it will be cooler near Lake Michigan with highs in the low 40s there and mid-40s inland. Wednesday is the best day to be outdoors with a southwest wind helping to knock back the lake breeze and bring temperatures into the low 50s. A cold front approaches by the evening hours to bring in a chance for rain Wednesday night with a quarter of an inch of rain expected.
Thursday will be mostly cloudy and cooler with highs in the mid-40s with another chance for afternoon rain. Rain chances continue on Friday with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 40s. Saturday will be close to 50 degrees again with a chance for afternoon showers but all of these rain chances are certainly not washouts and drier weather approaches for next week.
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds with isolated sprinkle. Low: 34. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
