Slick Spots Possible for the Friday Morning Commute
Light snow is expected to develop late Thursday night into Friday morning over much of Illinois and Wisconsin. Accumulations will most likely remain light and right around half an inch to an inch for most, but could be higher depending on how two low pressure systems interact with each other going into Friday morning.
Most of the accumulation will take place on grassy surfaces and lesser traveled roads, but the commute early Friday morning could be slick. It may be a good idea to allow yourself a little extra time for the commute as we get used to our winter driving conditions again. Now technically
we've already had our first snow of the season. That occurred back on Saturday, October 20th when a trace of snow was recorded at the airport. The snow Thursday night, however, will be the first measurable snow of the season. On average that typically occurs around the 20th of November for Rockford.
