CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Sunday's hangover from the snow will see possible flurries and wind chills well below zero.

A little more than five inches of snow fell overnight into Sunday morning at O'Hare International Airport, National Weather Service meteorologist David Beachler said. That brings the city's snow total to 73.4 inches this season, ranking it the fourth snowiest winter in Chicago.

The city could see some flurries in the afternoon and early evening before things start to dry back up, Beachler said.

Temperatures stayed in the teens throughout the day, paired with a wind chill at 9 degrees below zero, according to the weather service.

Wind chill temperatures could fall to 12 below zero Sunday night. But the weather service has made a more brutal prediction for DeKalb and surrounding counties, where wind chill values could slump as low as minus 25 degrees. A 12-hour wind chill advisory will go in to effect in DeKalb County at 9 p.m., the weather service said.

Back in Chicago, temperatures will dip a couple degrees below zero overnight and head back up to a high in the mid teens for Monday, Beachler said.

The mercury could hit the mid or upper 30's by the end of the week, but Beachler couldn't make any promises.

"We don't have a high confidence, but we're hoping there's a moderating trend once we get past tomorrow," Beachler said.
