Statement as of 9:42 PM February 13, 2012
...Snow to end tonight with patchy freezing drizzle possible...
Light snow will continue through the midnight time frame tonight before slowly shifting east out of the area. With the departure of this snow...a period of patchy light freezing drizzle will be possible across portions of northeast Illinois and Northwest Indiana. Although the extent of this freezing drizzle and the exact timing of this transition remain uncertain at this time...the chances for this light freezing drizzle will become more likely for areas along and west of a Rockford to Watseka line early Tuesday morning. With temperatures in the upper 20s...some slippery spots may form on area roads and possibly linger into the morning commute.
Anyone planning travel overnight should be aware of slippery Road conditions. Be especially cautious on elevated Road surfaces such as bridges and overpasses which typically see ice formation before other areas.
