Rockford Scanner™: Freezing Drizzle or Light Freezing Rain Possible Tonight.


Rockford Scanner. Rockford’s Leading Online News Site!


Intermittent light freezing rain will be possible tonight into early Friday through about 4am CST or so before the precipitation exits off to the east. With temperatures near to below freezing, this may cause slippery conditions in spots. Untreated roadways or those less heavily traveled or overpasses and bridges may be most susceptible to a light glaze of ice forming. Also, untreated parking lots or sidewalks may be susceptible to light glazing. Finally, black ice may be possible on on some roads in northern Illinois where snowmelt occurred during the day on Thursday.

Those with travel plans tonight into early Friday morning should be prepared for the possibility of slippery conditions. Slick roads will remain possible in spots for the Friday morning commute. Check updated road conditions before driving.

 


…Freezing Drizzle or Light Freezing Rain Possible Tonight…

Scattered light precipitation is expected to develop across north
central Illinois this evening, and then spread through remaining
portions of northern Illinois and northwest Indiana tonight. Some
warming expected today will support an initial wintry mix,
however, freezing drizzle or light freezing rain will likely
become the more dominant precipitation type during the overnight
hours. Given the cold surface temperatures, some light icing is
possible by the early morning hours on Friday.

Those with travel plans tonight into early Friday morning should
monitor latest forecast updates, and be prepared for possible
slippery conditions.

Barricaded Suspect, SWAT Team On Scene

 

UPDATE: RPD said this is a warrant service.  No other information at this time.

 


 

Sources reporting a man has barricaded himself inside an apartment complex in Rockford.

It happened near Sage Drive.  That is off of E Riverside area.

Numerous police are on scene and a sniper and the SWAT team.

It is not yet known why the subject has barricaded themselves.

We were told by a source, the man did not actually barricade himself, but only simply refused to answer the door for the police over a warrant. And now police are saying he barricaded himself. So it is unknown if the suspect just simply did not answer the door for police, or if the man really did barricade himself.

Several officers are out with their rifles, a snip, and numerous police. This is a very dangerous situation and we recommend you avoiding the area.

Rockford Scanner. Rockford’s Leading Online News Site!


 

After a few break-ins over at Piggly Wiggly, we’ve been working with the store to get additional security measures in place. As part of that security measure, one of our sergeants was able to spot a burglary in progress at the store last night just after 11 p.m.

Officers responded and cleared the building with the assistance of a Rock County K-9. After the building was cleared, officers located the suspect hiding in a vent on the roof. The suspect, Jeffrey M. Taylor, 37, of Janesville, was taken into custody for the burglary. He is also being arrested for burglaries at Piggly Wiggly reported on three other occasions: Nov. 6, Nov. 22, and Nov. 26.

Taylor was also arrested for bail jumping as he was on a $500 cash bond in a prior burglary charge.

Great job by patrol, who worked diligently to bring this suspect into custody
