Light snow is expected to develop mainly north of I-80 beginning this evening. Minor accumulations of less than an inch are expected through Thursday morning. With the slight accumulation, roads could be slick for the Thursday morning commute

Light snow will taper off Thursday morning across northern Illinois, and temperatures will reach into the 30s.

However, a wintry mix of precipitation will move into northern Illinois and northwest Indiana beginning Thursday evening. Freezing drizzle/rain will be possible across a good portion of the area, and could linger into Friday morning affecting the morning commute.

Drivers should be cautious driving on area roads. Temperatures will moderate heading into the weekend, but there is another potential for freezing rain Friday night into Saturday morning.

Precipitation will then change to all rain Saturday, and may be heavy at times.
