`Mixed bag` of weather Sunday, some roads hazardous

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A mixed bag of precipitation is expected to hit the Chicago area Sunday, making some roads hazardous for holiday travelers.

The National Weather Service warns that a wintry mix will move northeast through Illinois Sunday morning, bringing snow, sleet and freezing rain.

Forecasters say snow and ice accumulations could make travel hazardous Sunday, and freezing drizzle is expected to linger throughout the day.

The Illinois Tollway mobilized their full fleet of 182 snowplows Saturday night in response to the icy weather.

No one was injured when a pickup truck rolled over and caught fire on the inbound Eisenhower Expressway around 2 p.m. Sunday, but it was not immediately known whether icy roads caused the crash, according to Illinois State Police.

No other major crashes were reported on tollways or expressways through Sunday afternoon, police said.

As of 7:30 a.m., there were no delays at O'Hare and Midway airports, though there were a few minor cancellations, according to the city's Department of Aviation.

Temperatures will dip Monday and Tuesday, said National Weather Meteorologist Charles Mott. The high on Monday will be 20 degrees, while the high Tuesday will drop to 14 degrees.

There's a 20 percent chance for flurries both Monday and Tuesday, as well as a 50 percent chance of snow on Christmas morning, Mott said.
