An Arctic front is moving toward Chicago and will bring several days of frigid temperatures starting Sunday night, according to forecasters.
Chicagoland drivers, meanwhile, could face lingering travel hazards Sunday after Saturday’s snowfall.
As of 6 p.m. Saturday, 2.4 inches had fallen at O’Hare International Airport, according to the National Weather Service. The snowfall has subsided, but flurries are possible Sunday afternoon and evening, and wind gusts of up to 35 miles per hour could also blow powder back onto cleared streets.
“It’s going to be rather breezy,” said David Beachler, a NWS meteorologist in Romeoville. “That could easily cause some problems with the roadways and with visibility tomorrow.”
Monday’s predicted high of 20 degrees is the warmest — least cold is perhaps a better term — expected high until Friday, according to the Chicago Weather Center. Tuesday’s expected high is 6 degrees.
