Springlike weather Monday will be short-lived

Chicagoans shouldn’t get too comfortable with Monday’s springlike weather.

On Tuesday, more snow is on the way.

After an expected balmy 56-degree Monday, Tuesday’s high will be just above 40 degrees with a slight chance of morning precipitation, a National Weather Service meteorologist told the Chicago Sun-Times. The rain will really pick up in the afternoon hours, according to the weather service.

Commuters should be wary around rush hour Tuesday when precipitation will become a messy mix of rain and snow. Precipitation will be all snow by 8 or 9 p.m. with one to two inches accumulating overnight, according to the weather service.

“The rest of the week should be more or less quiet,” said Mike Bardou, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Chicago will have a break from rain and snow, but temperatures will fluctuate, according to Bardou. The high Wednesday will drop to the mid-20s and rise to the 30s and 40s through the end of the week.
