Seasonably Cold

After enjoying the warmest day of the year with temperatures climbing into the 50s (even a few 60s) on Friday, we’re going to need our winter coats for a few days. Seasonably cold air will stick around for the first half of the last full week of March.

High temperatures through Tuesday will top out in the low-to-mid 30s across the region. Low temperatures will bottom out in the low-to-mid teens. Overall, our temperatures will be 15 to 20 degrees colder than average. The end of March averages highs in the lower 50s and lows near 30.  This cold spell will not break any records, but it will serve as a reminder of the ups and downs of early Spring in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

With chilly air in place, any precipitation that falls will likely come in the form of snow. Light snow is likely late Monday afternoon through Monday night before winding down and tapering to flurries Tuesday morning. Rain showers return to our forecast by next Thursday & Friday as temperatures rebound back to near 50.

Things are looking up by the end of March. Temperatures may flirt with 60 by April Fools Day!
