    Snowy and Cold in Chicago This Week

    The flakes will fly at times this week across Chicagoland, including on the first day of the new year, and temperatures will be below average.

    The average high at the end of December is 32 degrees in Chicago, but highs will only be in the teens early this week. However, it will feel even colder with AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures forecast to be in the single digits.

    Light snow is expected later New Year's Eve into the nighttime hours and could leave a coating of fresh snow.

    Those out on the town for New Year's celebrations should plan to wear a jacket, as the air will feel very cold.

    More snow is likely on the first day of 2014 and a few inches could accumulate across the city.

    Drivers should expect some slick spots on the roads late Tuesday through Wednesday and air travelers should be prepared for delays at O'Hare and Midway airports.

    Temperatures on Wednesday into Thursday will not be as cold compared to early in the week, but highs will only reach the low to middle 20s.
