To hundreds of thousands of Chicago Public School students starting their spring break on Friday, it will look like a snowy day.

The National Weather Service predicts rain and snow showers that mix with ice pellets, sometimes called hail, in the afternoons and evenings. Some muddy accumulation can occur on grassy surfaces.

If April feels like it’s gone bankrupt so far, there’s data to support that perception. According to the Meteorological Bureau, the average temperature was a few degrees lower than normal, and if the cloud cover did not keep the nighttime temperature slightly warmer, the average would have been even lower.

Chicago isn’t the only one with a bumpy start in spring. According to the Midwest Regional Climate Center, temperatures were lower than normal during the first week of April in most of the Midwest.

A warm-up is scheduled for Monday, increasing the likelihood of a thunderstorm.
