It's going to warm-up a balmy 7. The sun will make another pointless appearance as brisk winds continue to keep our wind chills well below zero. Lows won't be that far from the high as it'll be around 5 degrees for all the fans gathered on the lakefront for the Bears-Packers game but as daybreak approaches, temps will actually rise as another system moves in to give us a new, fresh layer of snow just in time for Christmas. Also, with winter officially here, we should point out that we've already accumulated a foot-and-a-half of snow. So we might give last year's brutal, snowy winter a run for its money.
