CBS 2 Meteorologist Ed Curran has the 7 a.m. forecast for Sunday, March 14, 2021.
ED CURRAN: Hey, today we're looking at temperatures that are pretty reasonable for this time of day, 41 degrees at O'Hare. A mix of clouds and sunshine around the Chicago area. And we changed the clocks yesterday. So the sun just came up a little bit after 7:00. It won't go down till about 7 o'clock tonight.
And we have winds out of the North at 9. Eventually, they'll be out of the northeast, coming in off Lake Michigan. That'll hold temps down near the lake.
Increasing clouds around here. This system is sitting out to the west of us and eventually moistens up our atmosphere and gives us some rain and snow as we head into the day tomorrow. Even late tonight you can see some precipitation. Blizzard warning out here in Wyoming and parts of Nebraska and South Dakota. Blizzard warning associated with the system for Chicago, it won't be that dramatic.
We'll have clouds around here today. It'll be a quiet day. Southwest of the city, you could have some sprinkles, but that's about it.
As we go into the day tomorrow morning, we can have some frozen precip down to the southwest and then eventually a change over to snow. And what do we get out of this thing? Well, by the time it's all said and done, we could pick up a couple of inches of snow, maybe 1 to 3 inches. And that's about it, I think, is what we're looking at right now. But we keep a careful eye on it because our temperatures are right on that borderline between rain and snow.
And also it's very dry. It'll take a while to overcome the dryness out here and get some snow. But a couple inches is likely around Chicago tomorrow. But we warm it up on Tuesday and melt it away. And up near 50 on Wednesday. Spring arrives Saturday with 53 degrees and sunshine.
