As the song goes -- let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

The Chicago area will get more of the white stuff on Sunday. It won't be the steady snow the area experienced Saturday, but scattered flurries are possible early and late in the day.

Up to 2 inches are possible in the north and 3 inches in the southern portion of the viewing area.

A Winter Weather Advisory was issued through midnight for areas including Northern Indiana and Kankakee.

Oh, and take a warm coat. Temperatures will hover in the mid-20s.

Things have returned back to normal at Chicago's two international airports but Saturday was not a good day to fly out of the city.

Both O'Hare and Midway airports reported flight delays and cancellations due to snow moving through the Chicago area and inclement conditions on the East Coast.

Delays of up to 2 hours were reported at O'Hare for flights in and out of the airport, and more than 450 flights were canceled.

Sixty minute delays were reported at Midway, but only a few cancellations.

Chicago's Snow Command called in 175 drivers Saturday and have moved on to the city's side streets after tackling the main routes.

Drivers are urged to use caution -- the combination of precipitation and low temperatures will contribute to slick roadways, especially elevated surfaces like ramps and bridges.

More snow flurries and showers are predicted for Monday.
