With the cold air mass in place, we’re watching two snow chances – Sunday and Monday. Right now, Sunday’s activity looks to be more showery in nature, with a dusting to 2 inches possible.

We could have plowable snow with Monday’s event – it all depends on the storm track. One model brings just a couple of inches, and another sets up a heavy snow band across Northern Illinois.
