Chicago braces for cold weather, first snow

This year Chicago might experience snow much earlier than Thanksgiving, with one of the coldest weeks ahead of us. Saturday is shaping up to be cold for the season, with highs in the low to mid-30s and overnight lows in the 20s. Sunday temperatures are expected to be just a little bit higher, around 40, with mostly cloudy skies.

The cold and potential snow will return on Monday with temperatures topping out in the upper-30s and the chance for lake effect snow showers in the east.  Additionally, lake-effect snow showers are also possible Tuesday along the South Shore and in northwest Indiana. The day will look partly cloudy, windy and cold, as high temperatures continue to remain in the mid-30s.

According to the National Weather Center, the normal average temperatures for early November are closer to 50 degrees, so right now we are experiencing one of the coldest months so far. Meteorologists recommend to be prepared for slick road conditions during your weekend commute.
