Officials warned today that a powerful spring storm will drag in a motley combination of cold, warmth, fog, and heavy rain with possible flooding, making for a weird weather week in Chicagoland.
The week started with morning rainstroms yesterday followed by high winds and temperatures reaching into the 60s. Then today's highs in the areas north of Interstate 80 took a drastic dip into the 40s, while other areas south of I-80, like Joliet, still enjoyed spring-like weather with temperatures in the mid-70s, officials said.
This morning, dense fog caused delays and cancellations at O'Hare International Airport. But it's gone, soon to be replaced with showers and thunderstorms that will be with us until Friday.
That's when the weather is expected to movbe in yet another direction, with the precipitation possibly turning into snow showers Friday morning with temperatures plunging again to the low 30s by Saturday.
