    The polar air in place for the start of the week in Chicago has begun to depart as temperatures slowly rise over the next few days.

    The trend in warmer weather will continue through Friday with temperatures possibly climbing above freezing for the first time this month.

    Despite the higher daytime temperatures, nighttime lows will still reach the teens and single digits.


    While the Northeast gets hit by a snowstorm late week, Chicago will get only a few flurries Thursday evening. However, extensive flight delays are possible, as airports in the South and Northeast are impacted by snow and ice.

    Temperatures will take a dip back down into the 20s for the end of the week and for the start of the weekend.

    However, Sunday will bring the next chance for the city's high to rise above freezing.
