Major Snowstorm Misses To North But Snow Still In Forecast

They woke up to snow as far south as the Texas panhandle this morning as a major spring storm sweeps unseasonably cold air all the into the deep south.

While we missed this storm's snow we will have a few chances of seeing some white stuff this week as a cold pattern settles in. We could see some snow Tuesday afternoon into the evening and again early Wednesday. There could even be minor accumulations on some grassy surfaces. The snow may be mixed with rain and even graupel.

Notice the temperatures are hovering in the 40s for highs and dropping into the upper 20s for lows through Wednesday on this graph. That is a least 10 to 15 degrees below average. There will be a warm up by this weekend with highs near 60 on Sunday. The long range forecasts for are favoring the Chicago area for cooler temperatures overall through almost the end of April (April 18-26).

There is a glimmer of hope beyond that for a return to above average temps for the end of April with a mild start to May. The 3 to 4 week temperature probability outlook for the period of April 25 through May 8 favors the Chicago area and most of the country for that matter with above average temperatures overall.

Here is my 7 day forecast:

Wind Advisory Until 7 pm

Today: Becoming mostly sunny, windy (gusts to 45 mph) High: 44

Tuesday: Partly to mostly cloudy, pm rain/snow showers Low: 29 High: 45

Wednesday: A.M. light rain/snow, partly to mostly cloudy Low: 29 High: 44

Thursday: Mostly sunny Low: 30 High: 48

Friday: A.M. light rain/snow possible, mostly cloudy Low: 34 High: 49

Saturday: Mostly sunny Low: 36 High: 57

Sunday: Rain possible early, partly to mostly sunny Low: 46 High: 60
