After Saturday became the warmest day of the week with highs around 50 degrees, temperatures will cool by 10 degrees on Sunday in the Windy City.

The weather will cooperate as well for Sunday as travelers make the trek home. The precipitation that snarled travel plans for many on Wednesday will be long gone, making for smoother travel on Sunday, the second-busiest travel day of the year.

Times of clouds and sunshine will punctuate the day, as highs approach the 40-degree mark.

Looking forward to the first full week of December, Monday will bring clouds and limited sun with a threat for showers of rain and snow. Temperatures will be near 40 degrees, so any snow that falls is not expected to accumulate.

Shower chances and mostly cloudy skies will begin on Tuesday and remain through Wednesday, although temperatures will be a bit higher than last week with highs in the middle 40s to near 50 degrees. By Thursday, some wet snowflakes may mix in with the showers depending on the track of a storm.

The sun will reappear in time for next weekend, but temperatures will take a sharp drop into the 20s.
