Chicago Weather: Snow making roads slick for morning commute

0

CHICAGO (WLS) —

A mix of light snow and rain is making roads slick across the Chicago area for the morning commute Friday.

The snow is making visibility poor and while it is not expected to accumulate on roadways, it is making the pavement wet. About half an inch to as much as two inches of snow could accumulate on grassy and elevated areas.

The snow is expected to continue throughout the morning before tapering off in the afternoon, with some flurries still lingering.

By 9 a.m., Ottawa had received two inches of snow, DeKalb had 1.9 inches of snow, Libteryville has 1.8 inches of snow, Lake Zurich had 1.7 inches of snow and Aurora had an inch of snow.

The ABC7 Storm Tracker checked out conditions on Chicago’s North Side, where the snow was creating slippery roads. In north suburban Wadsworth, a Honda Accord was involved in a crash with a FedEx truck on U.S. 41, causing the FedEx to overturn.
