TODAY/TONIGHT: Light rain will continue though the morning with a few breaks here and there. Temperatures will gradually increase into the lower 40's by the early afternoon, however temps will drop heading into the later afternoon and we will see a transition from rain to a rain/snow mix. This will likely occur after 4pm for the Ports, but folks in the Arrowhead will be seeing more mix/snow for most of the afternoon. So we are still keeping an eye up the North Shore as well as Lake and Cook counties for some higher snow accumulations ranging from 5-10". Tonight the snow/mix will continue for the Ports through around 2am with new snow between 1-3". Lows will drop below freezing for most of the area as the system departs the region.

FRIDAY: There is a 40% chance of seeing some scattered rain/snow showers in the morning, otherwise dryer conditions in the afternoon. Highs will be around 44° with winds out of the NW 5-15mph.

SATURDAY: Some high pressure builds in, bringing some sunshine or at least partly sunny skies. Highs will be in the mid-40's with winds out of the east 10-15mph.

SUNDAY: The possibility of another soaking system threatens the region late Sunday into Monday. Right now I'm giving Sunday a 30% chance of seeing some scattered showers, mostly south of the region though. Winds will be breezy out of the NW as high pressure tried to battle the strengthening low to the south. Highs will be in the mid to lower 40's.
