    A cold snap has made the last days of winter feel like the season will never end, but a warm-up is in the forecast as the new week begins.

    For St. Patrick’s Day, morning clouds and snow flurries will give way to sunshine in the afternoon, and although the temperature will remain on the cool side in the low 40s, at least Irish eyes will be able to smile a bit as the sun reappears.

    As the new work week dawns, temperatures will stay in the low 40s, but a warm-up will begin in earnest on Tuesday, as the high will likely crack 50 degrees in the Chicago-area under sunny skies.

    There is a chance for rain on Wednesday, but after that the sun will make its presence known in a big way, as temperatures will climb into the mid-to-high 50s by the end of the work week and into the weekend.
