    After a string of mild days for the start of spring, big changes are on the way for Chicago and rest of the Midwest this weekend.

    A chilly blast of air will arrive in time for the first weekend of spring with temperatures dropping into the 30s. Highs over the weekend will be more typical of February rather than the opening days of spring.

    Overnight temperatures will be in the teens through the weekend. Those outdoors during the evening hours should wear the proper attire as cold-related injuries are possible.

    High pressure may extend dry conditions through the weekend into early next week.

    A chilly air mass is expected to remain in the area for much of next week. Although the calendar may say spring is here, next week will cast some doubts.

    Temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will hover around the freezing mark with the city's next chance for some snow showers arriving on Tuesday.

    However, by midweek temperatures will start to warm. By the last weekend in March, temperatures will have risen into the 60s.
