More frigid, "Chiberia"-esque weather is again in Chicago's near future.
After a "clipper" system brought heavy snow to some parts of the Chicago area on Saturday -- some western and southern suburbs saw 4-5 inches of snowfall, while 1-2 inches of snow fell closer to the city -- frigid temperatures similar to that seen during the polar vortex are expected to arrive in the area beginning Sunday night, according to the Chicago Weather Center blog.
By Monday night, the National Weather Service is reporting overnight lows could reach as low as -5 with a wind chill of between 15 and 25 degrees below zero. Daytime highs, meanwhile, will remain in the single digits to the teens.
The temperature is expected to remain in the single digits and teens for most of the week, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
This is definitely a "sequel" we were not excited for.

The snowy, slippery conditions on Saturday made for a "perfect storm" for a fatal crash in south suburban Manhattan, NBC Chicago reports. Two people were killed and one person critically injured in the crash.
