Freezing rain likely to cause slippery roads, sidewalks

Staff Report

The National Weather Service in Lincoln issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for portions of central Illinois, east central Illinois, and west central Illinois.

Overnight into Tuesday morning a weak weather system will “produce patchy freezing drizzle,” according to the report. Roads and walkways may become slippery if left untreated.

Late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning freezing rain and snow is expected, and those traveling should be aware of the possibility of ice on roadways.

Ice formations can make travel and walking conditions hazardous due to slick roads, parking lots and sidewalks.

Another winter storm is expected Friday night through Saturday night in central Illinois; accumulating snow is possible.
