ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - In the wake of the weekend’s seasonable temperatures in the 60s, Monday’s chill may have come as a shock to the system. The 52° high temperature at the Chicago-Rockford International Airport Monday is more typical of late March, and that was one of the warmest stations to report! Things aren’t to get better anytime soon, as highs aren’t to get out of the 40s on either of the next two days. The bigger stories, though, will be the continued chances for snow in and around the area as well as the prospects for a hard freeze on at least one and likely more than one occasion. The good news is that even though signs continue to point to many of us witnessing the flying of snowflakes Tuesday, there’s a high degree of confidence that the snow will be, at worst, a nuisance.
