    More than a thousand flights were canceled Sunday as a wintry mix descended on the Chicago area.

    As of 6 p.m. Sunday, an even 1,000 flights had been canceled at O'Hare International Airport, with an average delay of 44 minutes for all flights.

    Midway had plenty of flights canceled as well, with 156 axed due to the weather. Delays were much shorter at the airport, averaging 20 minutes, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation.

    A Lakeshore Flood Advisory is in effect for Cook County in Illinois and Lake & Porter counties in NW Indiana until 9 p.m. Sunday. 

    Temperature highs were expected to be in the upper 30s.

    A mix of rain and wet snow will persist in the area through most of the day, but is expected to taper off in the late afternoon and early evening hours before ending around sunset.

    As the new work week begins, the temperatures will steadily begin to climb, likely melting all the snow that falls on Sunday. Temperatures will rise to the mid-50s on Monday and up to the mid-to-high 60s by Tuesday, according to forecast models.
