Start cursing the weather gods, Chicago.
Snow could be coming to town as early as this weekend. That’s right, snow. Flurries and flakes.
The forecast says that Saturday night rain will turn into the white stuff early Sunday morning.
If the snow sticks, it would be the earliest recorded measurable snowfall in Chicago. The record was set just three years ago when it snowed on Oct. 12.
But it won’t be a complete anomaly – Chicagoans are accustomed to strange, disappointing weather.
Chicago has played host to October snowstorms before. Back in 1989 we got hit with 6.3 inches for the month.
What’s worse than the snow is the below freezing temperatures that are expected to accompany it.
It's not too late to get out of town for the Columbus Day Weekend!
