It was another weekend of snow for the Chicago area.

Accumulating snow moved into the area during the afternoon hours Saturday, bringing roughly 1-3 inches of snow by the evening hours. But another system is set to follow, moving in during the overnight hours and bringing more snow accumulations by Sunday afternoon.

Saturday started cold, with temps staying in the single digits, but things warmed up slightly with temps reaching into the upper teens as snow inched in.

A special weather statement was issued for several counties across the area, warning of a "short burst of intense snow."

The statement warns drivers to delay travel, if possible, until after 4 p.m. Saturday.

The first round of snow tapered by the late evening hours but the area had only a brief period of relief as another system moved in around midnight Sunday.

Sunday's snow should taper by the late morning or early afternoon hours as temps begin to fall.

By Sunday afternoon, weekend snow totals will be near 4 inches for most areas, potentially bringing the season's snow totals over 5 feet for the season.
