Accumulating Snow Returns Sunday

Accumulating snow returns to Chicago Sunday.

Snow showers are expected to develop in the morning hours and remain steady, NBC 5 meteorologists say. The snowfall could be heavy at times – with the potential of an inch per hour in the heaviest snowbursts.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for portions of NW Indiana and East, Central and Northeast Illinois until 4 p.m. Sunday.

While the area is only expected to see up to three inches of snow, travel conditions could potentially be dangerous starting Sunday morning and lasting into the early afternoon hours. Wind gusts are expected to go up to 30 mph.

The snow is likely to turn into rain and/or drizzle depending on where one resides but after Sunday comes and goes, Chicago is expected to see partly sunny skies for the beginning of the work week with highs in the low to mid 30s.

That break likely won’t last long either as snow is projected to return both Wednesday and Thursday.
