Though the city has seen sun and spring-appropriate warmth in recent days, cold, winter-like weather may return by the week's end.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago area may see snow flurries for a short time on Friday morning after a cold front moves into the region Thursday evening.

The snow is not expected to stick because of warmer temperatures -- highs ranging from the 40s into the mid-50s -- and scattered rain showers and thunderstorms throughout the preceding week, NBC Chicago reports.

The cold snap won't last long, however. Temperatures are expected to bounce back to the mid-to-high 50s by Sunday and Monday, National Weather Service meteorologist Charles Mott told the Chicago Tribune.

Chicago experienced an unusually cold March, especially when compared to the previous year. The average statewide temperature last month in Illinois was 34.1 degrees, more than 21 degrees colder than the record-setting average in 2012, according to the AP.
