    Snowstorm, Dangerous Cold Target Chicago

    Another snowstorm has begun to impact the city of Chicago heading into the second half of the weekend with dangerous cold to follow.

    Snow through Sunday will amount to 6-10 inches in Chicagoland with higher amounts expected south of the city. Snow totals will be closer to the order of 1-3 inches in the far northern and western suburbs.

    The snow will make roads treacherous for travelers, as well as threatening to cause flight delays and cancellations.

    As the snow gradually winds down Sunday, brutally cold air will arrive and cause temperatures to slowly fall through the single digits. Howling winds will hold AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures under 15 below zero most of the day.


    Actual temperatures will then plummet to 18 below zero Sunday night with RealFeels reaching 45 below zero, making those who fall to bundle up very susceptible to frostbite or hypothermia.
