    It wouldn't be spring in Chicago without a little snow in the forecast.

    After last week's unseasonably warm weather, temperatures continue to drop this weekend with a chance for snow Sunday night into Monday morning.

    Saturday started out chilly with temperatures in the 30s, but by the afternoon they will reach the upper 40s and low 50s inland. Temperatures near the lake will remain cooler with highs in the low 40s.

    Clouds will move in to the Chicago area throughout the day Sunday, bringing rain in the afternoon and evening. The high will only reach 39 degrees, opening up the possibility for snow Sunday night into Monday morning.

    Little accumulation is expected, but up to 3 inches could be on the ground in areas north and west of Chicago. Within the city, accumulation will likely be less than 1 inch.

    The high for Monday is a chilly 38 degrees, but temperatures will warm up to the 40s throughout the rest of the week with a chance for 61 degrees on Wednesday.
