Tuesday Am Snow Update

 11:20am Update: Snow continues to fall across the Stateline and will stick around before clearing up closer to 1pm today. Within the snow bands visibility is reduced close to 1 mile, you'll want to watch for fast changing visibility today. Along with that, you'll want to take it slow while out driving this afternoon with slick areas likely on area roadways.

Current road conditions showing Highway 20 is snow and ice covered, along with 52. Use extreme caution while travels on these roadways.

7:00am Update: Winter Weather Advisory continues for most of the Stateline, but has been cancelled for Whiteside county. Advisory in place through 9am.

Skies are dry for now, but watching another band of snow currently in eastern Iowa that will pull eastward over the next couple hours.

Snow Update at 5:30am:

The Winter Storm Warning has been cancelled for the Stateline, and a Winter Weather Advisory is now in place through 9am. The heaviest band of snow has lifted northward into south central Wisconsin, and this in turn has shifted totals north.

The Rockford area currently looks to pick up 2 to possibly 3 inches of snow through about 9am. Some light snow is possible through lunch time before we dry up and stay cloudy the rest of the day. For areas south of Rockford, like Rochelle...Dixon...and Sterling look to see more of a snow and sleet mix This means less in terms of snow totals, but will still be slick with minor ice accumulations.
West of Rockford near Freeport also looks to see about an inch of snow.
If you are headed north this morning, into south central Wisconsin, this is where you will see some of the higher totals for the Stateline, locally four inches or more is possible.

Impacts this morning will include periods of on and off snow this morning through about 9am. South of Rockford watch for minor ice accumulations and snow accumulation near an inch. Roads will be slick through the commute t his morning, but conditions will improve greatly by lunchtime today.
