The Chicago area is likely to see snow at the end of the Thanksgiving weekend weekend, as a winter storm was expected to sweep in northern Illinois.

Early seasonal storms were forecast to start with a slight chance of light rain Saturday night to Sunday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Lows will float around the mid 30’s.

It can turn into a blend of rain and snow Sunday afternoon, said NWS. The Chicago area was forecast to look up to three inches of snow, which “may be heavy sometimes.” Gustar as fast as 30 miles an hour can also come from the northeast.

A National Weather Warning Warning

Temperatures are likely to remain in the mid to the top 30s on Sunday and dive to the mid 20’s with “spotty” and “windy” snow at night, NWS said. Winds can move as fast as 35 mph and lead to flooding along the southern parts of Lake Michigan.

The snowfall was expected to decrease after midnight on Monday, said NWS. The rest of the week was slated to have partly cloudy skies, but with low in the middle of the teens in the evening between monday and wednesday. Snow can once again fall into small amounts of Thursday night.

NWS warned of the high traffic impact on Sunday due to the snow, which can lead to slippery roads and poor visibility.
