Rockford Scanner™: Don’t be deceived by the mild first couple days of March



There is a very small chance of light rain showers in northeast Illinois this evening, otherwise tonight will be quiet as will Thursday.
Cooler temperatures are in store for Thursday before a strong Spring system brings warmer temperatures and windy conditions into the weekend.
Rain chances increase late day Saturday through after dark. Showers with some heavier downpours are likely Saturday night, as well as possibly thunderstorms.
Cooler air moves into the region for early next week, when there is a chance of rain and snow Sunday night into Monday.

Don’t be deceived by the mild first couple days of March! Despite year to year variability in how much, historically, the odds strongly favor there being more snow in the coming weeks.
One upside for those with spring fever is that the higher sun angle typically results in snow usually not sticking around as long!
