Chicago weather: Freeze warning issued for parts of Chicago area

Clouds and cool temperatures were on the agenda for Sunday.

The cool weather is really starting to kick in and will last all the way through mid-week. Those clouds have given up a little bit of moisture and some light rainfall, primarily south of the city and across parts of northern Indiana.

As we went through the rest of the morning, a few scattered showers were still likely. Then, later in the afternoon, another round of some wet weather was expected. Temperatures today were forecast in the upper 40s.

On Sunday night, skies will begin to clear and temperatures will drop even more, creating a freeze warning for most of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

Several Chicago-area counties have a freeze warning from midnight until 9 a.m. Monday. The National Weather Service is calling for below freezing temperatures as low as 30 expected, mainly outside downtown Chicago.

Monday will be sunny and dry, but the daytime high temperature will barely scrape 40 degrees.

On Halloween, we will likely see a few snow showers and flurries. Some of that snow will likely start in the morning, and we could have some slushy accumulations. There will be blustery winds at times with gusts of 25, 30, or 35 mph as we head toward Tuesday as well.

The second half of the week will be warmer, as we push back into the 50s.
