After weeks of frigid air, a warmup comes for Chicago with some relief from the dangerous cold.

Temperatures stayed below freezing through the weekend, but will be on the rise early this week.

Another chance for wintry precipitation will come on Monday, as a wintry mix of snow and rain is expected. However, temperatures will rise close to 10 degrees from Sunday into the upper 30s.
