    The old saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers." But, with at least another three days of chilly, rainy weather on the horizon, Chicagoans might be singing a different refrain.

    Andy Avalos is predicting rain showers all week with temperatures only going as high as 65.

    The weather played a cruel trick by giving Chicago sunshine and blue skies over the weekend, only to turn cold at the start of the week.

    Today, thunderstorms could develop in the late afternoon and evening with heavy rain and temperatures in the mid to upper 40s. Although Tuesday will be one of the warmest days with highs in the mid 60s, Chicago won't see much sun until Thursday.

    Friday will be the light at the end of the tunnel with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 60s again. 

    While it feels like spring won't ever be around the corner, it could be worse. On this day in 1910, Chicago had 2.5 inches of snow on the ground, the National Weather Service Reports.
