Chilly weekend to follow season’s heaviest snowfall

Chicago’s anemic 2012-13 snow season continues, despite the city registering its heaviest snowfall of the season Thursday night. Though the 2.7 inch snow at O’Hare International Airport  and 3.3 inch total at Midway tied or set seasonal benchmarks, the city has logged less than half of its typical snowfall to date.  Despite a  chilly weekend with highs in the lower or middle 30s, no significant snow is expected with the exception of a few passing flurries Saturday. Sunshine should make a welcome return Sunday allowing for some melting of the city’s new snow cover.

Messy storm expected

A new storm system is expected to assault the nation’s midsection early next week.  Complex low pressure forecast to sweep from the southern Plains to the lower Great Lakes  will bring  a variety of inclement weather to the Chicago area that could start as rain or a wintry mix Monday night and end as snow by Tuesday night  as colder air moves in as the storm departs.
