The weather for the Chicago area has been unusually cool to start November. While a quick warm shot will take hold this weekend; snowflakes will mark the return of cooler weather by Monday morning.
Saturday felt more like a spring day in Chicago with mild temperatures and hail-producing thunderstorms.
The mild weather will hold through tonight and Sunday with temperatures once again set to rise into the middle 60s as the weekend comes to a close. However, rain will reach the city by the end of the day Sunday.
The rain will mark a change in the weather pattern, unfortunately a change back to unseasonably cool weather. In fact, the airmass moving in will be so cool that the rain may end late Sunday night or early Monday morning as some wet snow. Little to no accumulation is expected as the snow ends quickly early Monday morning and the sun returns.
After the wet weather, dry and cool conditions will linger through the end of the week. The sun will be out every day through at least Thursday, but temperatures will do little to reflect it.
