A Lake Effect Snow Advisory has been issued for the Chicagoland area Sunday morning.

According to the National Weather Service, snow will continue to hit Cook, Lake and DuPage counties on Sunday; the heaviest snowfall will take place in the morning.

The snowfall should diminish by Sunday afternoon.

According to the NWS, lake effect snow typically aligns and drops several inches of snow in localized areas, making travel difficult.

If you're headed to the Bears game this afternoon, you may want to consider taking public transportation.

CTA, Metra and Pace all make it very convenient to get to Soldier Field.

Fans can take the Metra into Union Station or Ogilvie Transportation Center.  CTA provides express buses from the Metra stations directly to Soldier Field.  They also offer special cash fares.

According to the Chicago Bears website, Pace also provides express buses to the stadium for Bears home games.
