Arctic air will blast Chicago this weekend, bringing the chance for snow to the Windy City.
Temperatures lingered in the upper 40s Friday, as cold air originating from above the Arctic Circle moved southeastward.
On Saturday, the mercury will plunge further as the day's high temperature hovers around 30 degrees F.
Snow showers are possible during the afternoon and windy conditions will make the day feel colder. Those spending time outdoors, or those involved in the tornado cleanup effort, should prepare to dress for January-like conditions.
Overnight temperatures will fall into the teens.
Sunday will be the coldest day of the week with a high of only 25 degrees.
Looking toward next week, temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will rise a bit with highs in the low 40s but Tuesday night will bring another chance for some flurries.
