Light snow, at times mixing with freezing drizzle, is expected to fall around the Chicago area through Sunday evening, forecasters said.

In Chicago, snow is most likely to fall before 9 p.m. with a slight chance of flurries overnight Monday, according to the National Weather Service. Little to no accumulation is expected.

The wintry system comes after light snow fell on Chicago Saturday, prompting the city to deploy more than 200 plows to clear salt and roadways, according to the Department of Streets and sanitation.

Between 1 and 3 inches of snow was predicted to fall off-and-on over the weekend, although above-freezing temperatures may melt any accumulation, according to the weather service.

Motorists were advised to watch out for slick roads. State police responded to at least 16 crashes between 4 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning on Chicago-area expressways.

Overall, the snow should remain on the lighter side, but brief bursts of heavy snow could limit visibility to a quarter-mile, meteorologist Kevin Birk said.

“Expect these brief bursts of snow, and be on the lookout for quick drops in visibility,” Birk said.

The snowfall is expected to clear up by Monday morning, the weather service said. The area’s next round of snow could come Tuesday night.
