Tuesday's soaking, wind-driven rain will be replaced by drier weather on Wednesday, but it will be chilly.

As the rain tapered off Tuesday night, some wet snowflakes mixed in across the city as temperatures plummet into the 30s.

A gusty wind will help dry roadways early Wednesday morning which should prevent any icy roads from developing for the morning commute.

"A noticeably cooler day is in store despite plenty of sunshine on Wednesday," Senior Meteorologist Carl Erickson said. "Northerly breezes will put an extra chill in the air."

AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will struggle in the upper 40s for much of Wednesday afternoon.

Tuesday's wet weather was enough to cancel the Cubs-Yankees game, so a doubleheader is scheduled for Wednesday at Yankee Stadium.

The first game is at 1:05 p.m. followed by the originally scheduled game for Wednesday at 7:05 p.m.

A warm jacket or sweatshirt may come in handy Wednesday due to the chilly weather.

Dry weather will prevail into Thursday and Friday as highs slowly rebound into the mid-50s.
