    Despite a brief warmup in Chicago, wintry conditions will span the weekend, creating less-than-ideal conditions for those departing for holiday travel.

    Saturday will usher in temperatures in the mid- to upper 30s. Rain and sleet will fall throughout the day, slicking roadways and sidewalks.

    Those who have to travel should allow extra time than usual to get to their destinations. Airliners may also face delays due to slippery runways and de-icing efforts.

    Overnight, rain will transition to snow in the city, before a wintry mix arrives the following morning.

    On Sunday, temperatures will push close to 40 degrees, despite RealFeel® temperatures dipping into the mid-20s.

    Christmas Day could bring some snow showers for those hoping for a white Christmas in the city.
