Temperatures drop as the day progresses, with gusty winds and the occasional shower – NBC Chicago

Thanksgiving Day started off mildly for the Chicago area, but residents will have to prepare to band together during the day as temperatures are expected to drop as the day progresses.

The region has already reached its maximum daily temperature and temperatures will continue to drop throughout the morning and afternoon. The measured values ​​will drop in the early afternoon until the 1930s and, according to forecast models, will drop below freezing point by early evening.

It gets even colder overnight, with temperatures dropping into the lower 20s in most locations.

To make matters worse, the wind is likely to pick up during the day, with some gusts of over 30 miles per hour. This, along with the cloudy conditions expected for Thursday, will result in wind chills into your 20s and even your teens as the day progresses, and it only gets worse overnight.

Black Friday shoppers have to brave some of the coldest readings of the season, with wind chill in the single digits in the western suburbs and barely creeping above 10 degrees elsewhere.

It doesn’t get much better on Friday afternoons as wind chills stay between the low to mid 20s and air temperatures struggle to hit the freezing mark.

Over the weekend, temperatures on the temperature front will improve somewhat, rising to the low 40s for Saturday, but the likelihood of rain and snow mixing is factored into the weather forecast on Saturday evening and Sunday morning, with Sunday highs expected to hit the top 30 .
