The National Weather Service advises motorists to be extra careful Sunday night as Chicago is expected to have light snow showers persisting into Monday morning.

The weather service said Chicagoans will probably see about an inch or less of snow, tapering off by late-morning.

Even with salt still covering roads and sidewalks across the city following the weekend storm, Jake Petr, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said “the ground is still cold enough for anything that does fall to stick.”

We’re stressing the potential for hazardous travel and slippery road conditions, Petr said.

Temperatures are forecast to reach the lower 20s and dip to around 5 degrees at night, the weather service said.
