    Although the Chicago area saw a brief burst of spring this past week, the wet and windy weather continues to make a comeback.

    A mix of wind, rain and cold could kick off the weekend with a Lakeshore Flood Warning in some parts of the Chicago area.

    A Wind Advisory for McHenry, Lake, DeKalb, Kane, DuPage, Cook and Kendall counties in Illinois has been issued until 7 p.m.

    Saturday is expected to be mostly cloudy with rain showers and possibly, even a few isolated storms.

    Temperature highs will rise into the upper-30s and low-40s and upper-40s to lower-50s on the far south of I-80 and southern portions of NW Indiana.

    Overnight could see periods of moderate rain, at times becoming heavy, with an icy mix along the Illinois/Wisconsin border. Breezy cold temperatures will remain in the lower-30s.

    With even cooler temps projected Sunday, light rain showers could mix in with sleet before turning into snow.

    By Monday some light snow and flurries could take place, though ending early in the morning and not leaving more than an inch throughout.

    As the week continues, temperatures will rise to the mid- and lower-50s and will most likely continue to stay in a cloudy and rainy state.
