Watch for light snow, slick roads Wednesday morning


Snow showers will add to the deep freeze the Stateline finds itself in. Flurries to light snow may make a few spots slippery for the Wednesday morning drive to work, but overall accumulations will stay very light.

The showers arrive after midnight, but only stick around to right before sunrise. Most locations will only get 1/2" of snow or less. The light amounts, however, may still be enough to create slick spots, so get out the door earlier than usual and go slower on the roads. The snow should be light, fluffy, and powdery, making it easier to sweep or shovel.

The rest of Wednesday and the rest of the work week will be dry after the pre-dawn snow. Sunday could feature more snow and higher totals, so stay aware of what's going on in the forecast leading up to Sunday. 

The light amounts will add to the meager snow totals so far this winter. Since December 1st, Rockford has recorded only 4.7" for snow. That's over 7" below average. At this time last year, Rockford had recorded 16.1" of snow.
