…Wintry Mix Possible Tonight…
A light wintry mix is probable tonight for a portion of northern Illinois, and this may include freezing drizzle. The area of potential is mainly for outlying locations from the Chicago metro along and north of Interstate 88. This includes the Rockford area and portions of the Interstate 39 and 90 corridors.
Light rain or drizzle, mixed with patchy light snow at times, is expected to begin across far northern Illinois late this afternoon into this evening. After dark, temperatures will very gradually inch downward to near or just below freezing late in the evening into overnight. Those surfaces that also cool to freezing could
see a light glaze of ice, which for any untreated roadways would result in hazardous travel conditions. If this were to occur, some of the slick conditions would likely linger into early Friday morning.
