Spring-Like Temps for Friday: How Will You Take Advantage?

Technically, it's winter, but the forecast for the next two days is for spring-like temperatures. Get out and do something with it, because the true season will be upon us before you know it!


Barrington residents will enjoy a high of 56 degrees Friday and a high of 50 degrees on Saturday. Better take advantage!

According to the forecast from the National Weather Service, there is just a 20 percent chance of rain and areas of fog before 9 a.m. Friday. Otherwise, the forecast is cloudy with a high near 56. Saturday will be be partly sunny, with a high near 50 degrees.

By Saturday night, however, there is a 50 percent chance of snow.

Here are a few ideas for the mild weather:

Get your car washed and waxed in preparation for winter, and ultimately, road salt at Fast Eddies in Barrington. 

Enjoy some frozen treats at Kaleidoscoops in Barrington or Bamboo Spoon frozen yogurt in South Barrington. 

Take your dog for a nice long walk or toss a ball around in one of Barrington's parks. 

How will you spend the day? Tell us in the comments.
