Weekend Weather Update for Sunday, January 21, 2018 – Early morning fog near the lake and northern suburbs
Fog, locally dense is expected today, with drizzle building to occasional showers by evening, followed by showers and thunderstorms overnight tonight into Monday morning. Unseasonably mild temperatures will continue until a cold front moves through Monday night. Behind the cold front Monday night, rain showers are expected to change to snow before ending, with some minor accumulations possible, mainly near the WI/IL border. Not much accumulation to speak of Monday or Tuesday, but the temperatures will drop and wind will pick up as the front moves into the area. I would say if you are on the road back, you will have pretty clear travel upto Monday night.
Although we will be dipping back into the normal temperatures for this time of year, we will have another unseasonably warm weekend coming up. Another safe weekend to travel.
Now to worry about getting the cigar smoke smell out of everyone’s clothes from Uncle Lewis’s stogies.
