Rain, snow, chilly weather to hit the Chicago area on Sunday – NBC Chicago
A low pressure system will slowly move across the upper Midwest, bringing more rain and snow to the Chicago area on Sunday, although accumulations are expected to be light.
According to NBC 5 forecast models, light snow is expected in the northern and western suburbs Sunday morning, with most of the precipitation concentrated in areas north of downtown Chicago.
The aforementioned low pressure system will maintain the chance of precipitation for most of the day, although activity may be quieter, especially near noon.
According to forecast models, some parts of the region, especially south of Interstate 80, may see precipitation as rain instead of snow.
High temperatures are expected to be in the high 30s, with some places reaching 40 degrees.
Those scattered flurries are likely to persist into Monday morning, with lake-effect snow also possible in northwest Indiana.
Total accumulations are expected to be very light, with areas near the Wisconsin border receiving an inch of snow by Monday afternoon. Elsewhere, less than half an inch of snow is expected.
Highs will remain in the low 30s on Monday and Tuesday, with warmer temperatures expected on Wednesday as highs are in the upper 40s and low 50s. That will continue into Thursday, although another system will bring rain and coolness back into the region on Thursday and Friday, with temperatures dropping into the low 30s over the weekend.
