Chicago residents should brace for a drop in temperatures and scattered snow showers, according to CBS 2 meteorologist Robb Ellis’ forecast on Sunday, April 16, 2023.
The region will also experience strong winds, which will make it feel colder than the actual temperature.
The cold weather is due to an area of low pressure in the atmosphere that is spinning nicely but is not moving, which means residents will have to deal with it for another day.
The good news is that the snow and rain showers will provide moisture, which was needed due to dry conditions in the area.
Although temperatures are expected to stay close to or above freezing, residents in some parts of DeKalb and McHenry County may experience more than an inch of snow on grassy surfaces.
The wind will be sustained around 20 to 30 miles per hour, with gusts of up to 45 miles per hour.
A wind advisory is in place for LaSalle County until 7 p.m.
on Monday, April 17, 2023.
However, the temperature will gradually rise and return to the 50s by Tuesday, April 18, 2023, with a lot of sunshine expected.
