Winter Advisory in effect until six Friday night; watch for slick spots Thursday morning

Temperatures right around freezing in South Central Illinois could result in slick spots on area roads, parking lots, and sidewalks as a combination of rain, freezing rain and snow is falling Thursday morning.

A winter weather advisory is in effect until six Friday night as a result of the potential for slick roads.    Mixed precipitation becoming all snow this evening. Additional snow accumulations of one to three inches. The higher amounts are expected to be over portions of east-central Missouri and portions of southwest Illinois.   It only takes a small amount of wintry precipitation to make roads, bridges, sidewalks, and parking lots icy and dangerous. It is often difficult to tell when ice begins to form, so do not be caught off guard. For the latest road conditions, go to www.gettingaroundillinois.com.
