Temps won't make it past the freezing mark until Friday, when the high is forecast to be a relatively balmy 38 degrees. The Chicago area could also see some light snow Thursday night into Friday morning, with the best chance for accumulating snow south of the city. Those areas could expect to see around 1 to 2 inches.
