Rockford Scanner™: NWS Issues A Special Weather Statement



Note: Rockford has began salting, details at ~ CLICK HERE 

Light to occasionally moderate snow will continue through the
evening commute and impact travel. 

Snow totals up to around one
inch, to locally up to two inches near Interstate 90, are expected
by the end of the evening commute. 

A band of moderate to heavy
snow just to the south may clip the southern portions of McHenry
and Lake Counties up until about 6 PM. Due to the cold air
temperatures, road treatments will be less effective. 

Drivers can
expect to encounter slippery road conditions into this evening,
along with visibility occasionally under one mile. Leave extra
travel time. Reduce speed and increasing following distance when
driving on snow covered roads. 

Stay tuned for the latest updates
and possible issuance of a Winter Weather Advisory.
