Rain, Snow Forecast for Chicago Area This Week



    Heavy Rain Possible

    Heavy rainfall is possible through Wednesday and then the Chicago area could see its first chance for snow (Published Monday, Nov. 16, 2015)

    After a sunny and bright start to the work week, it appears things are about to get wet, then cold, then wet and cold -- which could mean snow in the Chicago area.

    An active weather pattern will move in Monday afternoon and last throughout the week, bringing the chance for rain, thunderstorms and possibly snow by the end of the week.

    Scattered showers will develop Monday afternoon and evening continuing through the night and into Tuesday morning.

    Rain Tuesday could become heavy at times with a few thunderstorms possible. Temperature highs will sit in the upper-50s and near 60 degrees.

    The rain is expected to continue Wednesday, with another chance for thunderstorms as the warmer temps linger.

    Things look to dry up Thursday as temperatures dip down into the upper-40s.

    Friday will be breezy and cool with showers possible during the late evening and overnight hours. With cooler temps still in the area, there’s a chance for that rain to mix with some light snow by dawn Saturday, particularly in areas north and west of the city.

    Saturday will stay mostly cloudy with light rain and snow showers possible as highs sit in the low-40s.

    Sunday highs dip to near 40 degrees as the chance for light rain and snow showers continues.
