Is it Snowmagedon? 

NWS Chicago
NWS Chicago

Snow arrives across the region this evening. Two general rounds of impactful snow are expected, with the first tonight into early Tuesday morning and the second Tuesday mid-morning through the evening across mainly NW Illinois. Some uncertainties regarding if prolonged intense snowfall rates will be maintained across NW Illinois remain this morning. The Winter Storm Watch remains in effect as a result. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for all of the region for tonight.


Due to anticipated weather conditions throughout the week of January 8, 2024 until further
notice, the Director of Public Works has declared a “Snow Emergency” for the City of Rockford
as specified below. Enforcement teams will be deployed throughout the week to ticket

Effective: Today, January 8, 2024 at 8:00 PM
Parking: Today – Even Side effective 8:00 PM
Tomorrow – Odd side at 8:00 AM

Contractors are scheduled to begin plowing residential streets as soon as 2 inches of snow is
The odd/even parking will be in effect until the public works department deems it is no longer
necessary. Updates to the snow emergency will be provided at appropriate times throughout the
remainder of the storm.


In order for our crews to remove snow and ice from city streets, we must have the ability to safely and
effectively maneuver a plow up and down our streets. If a snow or ice storm reaches the point that
streets are becoming difficult to clear, city officials can declare a Snow Emergency.
A Snow Emergency requires that vehicles be parked on the odd side of the street when the date ends in
an odd number and on the even side of the street when the date ends on an even number. For example,
on January 5th, you would park on the odd side of the street. If the snow emergency carries into the
next day, at 8:00 AM your car should be moved to the even side of the street.

Police will issue parking tickets at the cost of $60.00 to vehicles that are parked on the wrong side of the
street. It’s safe to assume that if it’s snowing the Odd/Even Parking is in effect.
The residential area between 20th St. west to Kishwaukee St., Harrison Avenue north to Rural St. has
been problematic for the City Crews to plow during past storms, due to vehicles parked on both sides of
the street. We would encourage citizens in this area to move their vehicles either off the street or to the
appropriate side of the street as specified by the odd/even parking.

• If your street is marked as “No Parking” on one side of the street, the Snow Emergency Declaration
allows you to park legally in the restricted area during the time that the Snow Emergency Declaration is
in effect.
• Do not assume that you can move your car when the street is plowed. Your car must remain parked
appropriately until after the Snow Emergency has been lifted.
• All vehicles must be moved to the correct side of the street at 8:00 a.m.
• The City of Rockford or its contractors are not responsible for plowing alley ways.


Here’s a general overview of expected precipitation types, intensities, and timings. To use this slide, find your general area in the inset map and identify the number. Look at the associated line number on the graph at the right.


Round 1 arrives this evening. Most of the snow is expected to accumulate in a brief window, likely 3-4 hours or less just prior to and possibly including the early-morning commute. Travelers for Tuesday morning should be prepared for greatly increased travel times during the morning commute.

Round 2 is expected later Tuesday morning/midday and into the evening, with the focus shifting to areas NW of I-55/94 with a transition to rain to the east. Some uncertainty remains regarding whether persistent high snowfall rates will be achieved across NW Illinois in the red-shaded area at this time, which is part of the reason by the Winter Storm Watch remains unchanged. A very sharp gradient in snowfall amounts will occur in the vicinity of the rain/snow line.

An active pattern is expected into this upcoming weekend with one storm system to affect the area tonight through Tuesday night and a second possible storm system to affect the area Friday into Saturday. A weak system may bring light snow to parts of the area Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. Much colder air is expected to spread into the region this upcoming weekend into early next week.



* WHAT...For the Winter Weather Advisory, snow expected. Total
snow accumulations of 2 to 3 inches. For the Winter Storm Watch,
heavy snow possible. Additional snow accumulations in excess of
6 inches possible. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.

including the Rockford area.

* WHEN...For the Winter Weather Advisory, from 8 PM this evening
