Chicago Weather: Light Wintry Mix Friday Night

CHICAGO (CBS) -- After the low drops to 27 Thursday night, look for a sunny start to Friday with high clouds increasing later in the day.

At night, a wintry mix of rain, sleet, and snow moves in. The center of the storm will pass well south of us, so we only expect minor amounts of mixed precipitation.

If we do end up with .1 inch of snow, that would count for our first measurable snow of the season. If we do not, then we'll break the record for the latest (first measurable) snowfall of the season. The current record is Dec. 20, 2012.
