SHARE Forecasters: Northern Illinois could see snow overnight

Forecasters are predicting a chance of light snow late Friday or early Saturday as a cold front moves in with rain storms over northern Illinois.

The continuing rain, aided by a front of cold air expected to move through north central Illinois near the Rockford area, could create “a chance of a few light snowflakes mixing in” with the rain, National Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Birk said.

While temperatures in the Chicago area won’t drop low enough for snow to fall, there’s a chance that Friday’s rain will continue overnight, Birk said.

Temperatures in Chicago will drop to the low-to-mid 40s Friday night, while the surrounding suburbs could see lows drop into the 30s, Birk said.
