After overnight snow accumulations of an inch or more at some locations, the Chicago area will see below-average temperatures on Saturday, but a winter storm brewing to the south will stay away from the region.
Slick spots are possible on area roads Saturday after the night snow, which left accumulations of more than an inch at many locations, including 1.5 inches in La Salle.
Especially in the morning on Saturday a few showers are possible, but the conditions remain partly to mostly cloudy, with highs in the mid-20s for the rest of the day.
Wind gusts of up to 20 miles per hour will help keep wind gusts in the teens for most of the day, according to forecast models.
As a winter storm continues to affect the south, bringing snow and ice to Kentucky and Tennessee, while rain dumps in areas closer to the Gulf of Mexico, clouds will remain the only threat in the Chicago area until Sunday.
Temperatures rise to around 30 degrees to end the weekend, with a chance of a few snow showers in the evening.
Northwest Indiana could see some snow Monday morning, and heights will climb again near its seasonal averages in the low to mid-30s across the region.
