Weekend Of Spring Temperatures Will Follow Snow This Week

This week will be the rare type of week that's both snowy and springy.

Already we got several powdery inches of snowfall on Sunday—which was a fun Valentine’s Day miracle or a sucky Valentine’s Day horrorshow, depending on how warm your boots were.

Forecasts predict more snow will fall today and/or Tuesday.

By the end of the week, though, all the snow will be melting. On Friday, temperatures are expected to surpass 50 degrees, ushering in a balmy (for February) weekend.

Not that Chicagoans even need warm weather to go swimming or run around basically naked.
