Northbrook reached a high of about 44 degrees on Monday, which comes out to a 46 degrees warmer than the high of -2 degrees we had a week ago.
The overnight low Monday into Tuesday will dip to a not-so-bad 27 degrees, the National Weather Service forecasts. There is also a 70 percent chance of snow on Tuesday, when the high temperature could hit around 35 degrees.
Temperatures will slowly work their way back down as the weekend approaches, with a forecasted high of 17 degrees Friday.
