Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Saturday clouds will increase ahead of another clipper system.

It will be windy and mild with highs in the mid-40s. By evening the leading edge of a strong Arctic front will enter the area and temperatures will fall 30 degrees to near 14 with wind chills at zero. Light snow showers or flurries are possible overnight.

Sunday starts in the mid-teens and temperatures fall throughout the day to single digits overnight. Light snow showers are possible across the area.

Monday and Tuesday we will experience the coldest days since February 2011. Highs in the single digits and low teens with lows near or below zero. Flurries are possible both days.

By Wednesday we start to warm into the 20s and Thursday we will be in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees ahead of a southern plains storm system. Rain is possible Thursday with measurable snow and temperatures in the 20s on the backside of the system. This pattern of cold Arctic air spilling into the region with limited warm days will be with us for much of February. In other words Winter has arrived late, but it's here to stay.
