What to Expect Tonight

As evening progresses, the chances of rain will increase. While rain will become more widespread, the intensity will pick up later in the evening. From midnight until the pre-dawn hours, expect heavy rainfall accumulation of up to an inch in many areas. By dawn, winds will intensify from the north and northeast, gusting at around 30 mph. Temperatures will drop from the 40s to the 30s.

Transition to Snow

During the pre-dawn hours, rain will transition to heavy wet snow or a snow-rain mix, starting from the northwest and moving southeastwards. Elevation plays a role, as higher areas might experience a quick coating of snow, mainly on grass. However, this can also cause slushy spots on roads. In the northwest suburbs, expect an inch or two of snow accumulation by morning. Temperatures near sunrise will range from 32 to 38 degrees.

Tomorrow’s Outlook

Tuesday will bring moderate to heavy wet snow during the pre-dawn hours, gradually shifting eastward into the morning commute. Slushy roads may persist as wet snow falls in the west and a rain-snow mix occurs in the east. Throughout the midday, expect the snow to taper off. High temperatures will reach the mid-40s as winds blow from the northwest and skies attempt to clear in the afternoon. Gusts of 30 to 35 mph are possible.
