Summary of Winter Weather Event Dec 15-16

The weather system that produced the 2 to 5 inches of snow along and north of I-74 last night has shifted off to our east taking most of the steadier snows with it. Further south...there was some light freezing rain and sleet during the early morning hours and that too has shifted off to our east. However...in the storm's wake...there will be some very light snow and freezing drizzle through the afternoon which will continue to keep untreated roadways slippery. Additional snow accumulations will be less than a half inch...mainly along and north of I-74. For a quick overview of road conditions across the state...please refer to the Illinois Department of Transportation's Winter Road Conditions 

Additional details can be found at www.crh.noaa.gov/hazards/ilx
