CHICAGO (AP) — Football fans will need to bundle up when the Chicago Bears host the Dallas Cowboys.

The mercury is expected to drop throughout the day Monday and forecasters say wind chills will fall below zero when the teams face off during Monday night football.

The National Weather Service in Romeoville says the wind chill in some parts of northern Illinois could sink to 15 below zero on Monday night. The temperature at Soldier Field is expected to be in the teens at kickoff, but with the wind chill it will likely feel colder.

About three inches of snow fell at O'Hare International Airport on Sunday and flurries continued Monday.

The game begins at 7:40 p.m. CT.
