Warmer Air, Light Snow Headed Our Way

Temperatures expected to be in high teens for Sunday's game

Snow fighting trucks are paying special attention to bridges and overpasses after a light snow has fallen Saturday morning. 

Seventy-five snow fighting trucks were sent out to patrol the main roads about 4 a.m., according to a release from the city’s Dept. of Streets & Sanitation. The trucks will focus on bridge decks, overpasses and elevated portions of roadway.

Meanwhile, light snow has fallen and the high temperature is expected to be near 20 degrees, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Charles Mott. As of 9:30 a.m. it is 15 degrees in the Downtown area. Single-digit temperatures are predicted for Saturday night, Mott said.

The weather service predicted a 60 percent chance of measurable snow, but an accumulation of less than an inch is expected.

Wind chill readings between zero and minus-10 are expected Saturday night.

For Sunday’s NFC Championship game between the Bears and Green Bay Packers, temperatures are expected to be in the high-teens with a 40 percent chance of snow showers, the weather service said.
