    February out like a lamb, March in like a lion!

    At least, that’s how NBC 5’s meteorologist Andy Avalos puts it.

    The month of February is projected to end on a sunny note, as March greets Chicago with potential heavy rainfall.

    As numerous flood warnings continue on many local rivers, Monday night is likely to remain between 35 to 40 degrees.

    The weather on Tuesday is expected to be sunny and cool throughout the day, highs ranging between 55 to 60 degrees. A weak wave however, is likely to bring clouds back and ensue scattered showers in the Chicago area overnight and into Wednesday.

    With possible early morning showers Wednesday, temperatures are likely to remain in the upper 40s and low 50s.

    It looks like there will be overcast Thursday, accompanied with moderate to heavy rain and perhaps some thunderstorms added into the mix. There is a possibility that Thursday could see a period of heavy wet snow developing in the afternoon and into the evening.

    Once this system clears the area, another elongated ridge of high pressure could return Friday through Sunday with mainly sunny, dry and pleasantly cool weather before yet another storm is said to arrive on Monday.
