Saturday’s 80-degree high, occurring about two weeks ahead of schedule, was an aberration in Chicago slow-starting spring. The unusual warmth lingered into Sunday morning with highs peaking around 70 before the return of a chilly northeast flow dropped the mercury into the familiar 40s that have dominated much of this spring.

What may be winter’s last hurrah is expected Monday afternoon and evening when an influx of cold air will change the lingering rain to snow before ending. Most of the snow is expected to melt on contact with the warm pavements, the some snow could whiten grassy areas especially north and west of the city.
