The showers and chilly temperatures could continue into Monday, with rain and snow expected early in the day. By the afternoon, the area will likely see scattered showers and high temperatures in the mid-to-upper 40s

Chicagoans will likely see temperatures hitting the 50s by the middle of the week with a mix of sunshine and clouds before a major warm-up hits the area.
