Chicago snow
America   Temperature highs were expected to be in the upper 30s

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

O’Hare International Airport reported 884 flight cancelations by 3:30 p.m. Sunday with an average of 54 minute delays and Midway International Airport reported 118 cancelations with a 45 minute delay.

A Lakeshore Flood Advisory is in effect for Cook County in Illinois and Lake and 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.
