Snow increases through the day on Sunday with two to three inches north of I-80. Lesser amounts to the south.
With the storm center passing just to our north, mild air will creep in from the south.
We could have mixed precipitation at times. That’s why I expect a wet snow with this event.
This new accumulation will add weight to our snowpack. As temperatures rise to 40 next week, river flooding, ice jams and falling ice will be an issue.
Also, ice dams can form at the edge of roofs due to large icicles resulting in water damage to homes.READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Temperatures Climbing; Sunny Skies Ahead
