Warmer temperatures are finally arriving in the Chicago area after a long freeze, but more snow is expected to come along with that relief on Sunday.
According to current forecast models, clouds are expected to build into the area throughout the day and into the early afternoon, with snow beginning around 3 p.m. in the western suburbs and eventually spreading area-wide by the late afternoon.
Approximately 1-to-3 inches of snow are possible with the weather system, with some areas south of Interstate 80 seeing some mixed precipitation or even light rain.
High temperatures Sunday are expected to climb into the low-30s, with some areas getting above the freezing mark for the first time since Feb. 4.
After the snow moves out of the area, things are going to get even warmer on Monday and into Tuesday, with highs climbing into the low-40s by Tuesday afternoon. Dry conditions are expected to prevail both days, with the next chance of snow coming on Wednesday.
