Halloween is right around the corner and this year, spooky events and creepy costumes may not be the only things frightening Chicagoans.
The National Weather Service has warned that the first snowfall of the season is in the forecast for Tuesday. The high is expected to be around 38 degrees, with wind gusts as high as 25 miles per hour. The chance of precipitation is 80% and snow accumulation of less than half an inch is possible. Morning commuters could also face some slick road conditions.
For those who will be out trick or treating, there’s a 20% chance of snow showers before 10pm. The low will be 25 degrees and wind chills will hover between 18 and 25 degrees. So bundle up if you’re headed out.
Fortunately, the temperatures are projected to warm up after a chilly Halloween. This weekend will see a high of 54 degrees on Friday, 59 degrees with a chance of rain on Saturday and 54 degrees on Sunday. That should provide some comfort as the calendar turns to November, and you should make the most of it by experiencing fall in Chicago before winter arrives.
