Chicago Weather: Warmer Temperatures Give Way To Freezing Rain, Fog And Wind

After up to 10 inches of snow were dropped on the Chicago area Friday, the city is expected to experience warmer temperatures and still sloppy conditions into the new week.

The slight warmup, as the Chicago Tribune reports, could be accompanied by freezing rain, fog, icy roads and even the small possibility of thunderstorms Sunday as temperatures hover around 32 degrees. With snow already on the ground, the warmer air will likely breed dense fog that could make for low visibility in the area.

Areas south of Chicago will be most at risk of heavy rain accompanied by thunder and winds up to 60 mph late Sunday, according to the Tribune. Flooding on account of the melting snow is also possible, though no flood watches or warnings had been issued in the area as of Sunday morning.

Heading into the work week, the Chicago Weather Center is forecasting temperature highs in the 30s throughout the week with high winds gusting to 35 mph continuing into Monday.
