    It's not expected to accumulate, but Chicagoans shouldn't be surprised if they see a flake or two through Saturday morning.

    A stubborn weather system keeps temperatures low and precipitation falling through the early part of the weekend.

    Mid-April snow is rare but not unheard of in a city that saw near-record high temperatures in January. The forecasted white stuff follows an unseasonably cool week with plenty of brisk wind and showers.

    On Wednesday, morning commuters dealt with heavy rain and hail in isolated storms. One storm cluster forced several vehicles off the road near DeKalb while heavy overnight rain left rivers and streams swollen west of the city.

    The storm gave way to periodic showers for the early Thursday commute as the center of the system moved over the area. Clouds, wind and chilly temperatures remained throughout the day.

    The trend of rain and fluctuating temperatures may continue through the next week. Temperatures could jump to nearly 60 on Sunday.
