Slick roads!

snowradar7:00pm – Road conditions continue to deteriorate in spots this evening. When the wind gusts, the roads may become simply impassable. While conditions are poor, the amount of snow is also pretty poor. We’re looking for no more than a few inches in the coming days. However, some areas circled here could see an inch or two very quickly in the coming hours. Be careful, especially south and west of the Forest City. -ES

4:55pm – We’ve gotten quite a few calls about some nasty road conditions this evening. Just the right amount of snow has fallen on the newly washed streets (due to this past weekend’s rain) to create some black ice.

snowplowShawn Lester called and reports Riverside Blvd near North Towne Mall “like a skating rink. Only one lane of traffic is getting through because of an accident that knocked down a light pole.”

Take it easy everyone!!! -ES

    I left my best friends house around 610pm and when I was waiting to turn on to auburn from williard, it was literally a ground blizzard. The roads are very horrible right now.

    North of the stateline maybe not so bad.

    I just drove down from Madison, WI to the state line. Light snow, some blowing snow, slightly gusty winds, but basically not too bad. The traffic was moving right along and – at least on the Interstate – it was not slick. In some places traffic slowed to 50 or 55 mph due to blowing snow but that was just in a very few stretches.

    Air temp between 20º and 22º.

    Does anyone have any updates on roads? I am thinking about driving to belvidere in a while and don’t know if I should try it or just wait until another day.
