Get ready for a meteorological rollercoaster ride. Temperatures will bounce back to above normal on Wednesday, but then a pattern change is expected to bring colder conditions into next weekend. Not exactly Randy Advisory temperatures yet but there could be a slight CLC (Checkout Line Congestion) in most grocery stores as we approach the weekend. There have been sightings of HHHH (Hostess Ho Ho Hoarders) groupings to plan their next attack next weekend. After the lake effect snow on Monday, the next chance of precipitation is presently not forecast until Saturday.
On and off snow showers are likely tonight, especially for the Chicago area and suburbs this evening, and then into northwest Indiana late. Additional lake effect snow showers will occur on Monday, with morning snow showers into Chicago and northwest Indiana, and then shifting into only northwest Indiana for the afternoon. Total accumulations of 1-2″ are presently most favored in Lake and Porter Counties in northwest Indiana, though several tenths of an inch to possibly near an inch are likely in far northeast Illinois including Chicago.
