    April 24. A fine time for some snow flurries in Chicago, right?

    Mother Nature seems to think so.

    Temperatures were down more than 20 degrees between midday Tuesday and the nighttime hours. And they'll stay that way, hovering in the 30s and setting the area up for flurries into the morning hours.

    But don't worry, any snow that falls certainly won't accumulate and the sun is expected to shine later Wednesday morning. Temperatures should be in the low 50s.

    Thursday night brings another chance for rain and snow showers.

    Predictions for Friday and beyond appear to be more tranquil. There's no precipitation in the forecast for Friday, Saturday or Sunday, and temperatures look to be creeping toward 70 by the end of the weekend.

    Moderate rain began falling over the area late Tuesday night. By 10 p.m., Gurnee had recorded nearly .8" of rain, Crystal Creek was registering .62" and Naperville was clocking in with .68" of rain.

    All of that is rain the already-soaked Chicago area certainly doesn't need. A flood gauge on the Des Plaines River at Lake Avenue and River Road was showing the water level at 8.77 feet. Experts predict the level would recede to about 5 feet -- still considered "minor" flooding -- by about 3 a.m. Saturday.
