An active weather pattern covers a wide expanse of the Midwest, including our area, this weekend.
A series of upper air disturbances riding along a nearly stationary front to the south will be the mechanism to generate a wide-variety of precipitation. Travelers to and from Chicago for Illinois Basketball will get a taste as such.
Periods of snow and sleet, with some accumulation, along with a spell or two of freezing rain, will be found from Interstate 80, northward.
To the south, and across much of central Illinois, an expanding area of freezing rain and sleet develops this afternoon, and more so tonight. Icing and glazing could very well become an issue.
So, the bottom line here is plan your itinerary and travel times accordingly!
