    After a frigid 36 hours in Illinois, the mercury rose above zero Tuesday afternoon.

    The relative "warmth" -- albeit in the single digits -- comes after a record-breaking cold snap.

    A Wind Chill Warning the area had been under since Sunday expired at noon, though the wind kept temperatures feeling like it's still well below zero.

    Air temperatures overnight Tuesday were expected to dip a couple of degrees below zero in the western suburbs, but not nearly as cold as the previous two evenings. Wind chill values will make it feel like it's in the negative teens.

    Expect temperatures in the mid teens on Wednesday with a chance for some light snowfall, especially in the south suburbs.

    Light snow is also possible on Thursday, with high temperatures increasing to the mid-20s.

    On Friday, look for temperatures to head north of the freezing mark, with a chance for a rain/snow mix and more rain on Saturday.
