When Could the Chicago Area See The First Snowfall of 2018?

Temperatures may rise just a little bit as the week wears on—but some Chicago-area residents could see the first snowfall of 2018 as early as Wednesday morning.

A clipper system to the area’s far north and west could produce some non-accumulative snowfall by 1 a.m. across the northwestern counties. The snow could continue to fall around 5 a.m. but should be gone by 9 a.m. for the morning commute.

Sub-zero wind chills will continue until Friday with a warm-up starting Sunday with a high of 33 degrees—but with a chance of snow showers.
