IDOT’s tips for driving in winter weather
When people head back to work this week, their commutes could be affected by snow and ice again, with the worst of it expected to hit the metro-east early Wednesday morning.
The National Weather Service is predicting possible snow and sleet accumulations of 1-3 inches between Tuesday and Wednesday in the metro-east.
The agency says there is a chance of rain after 3 p.m. Tuesday that is expected to mix with snow after 5 p.m.
The forecast calls for freezing rain, snow and sleet beginning about 3 a.m. Wednesday.
By the end of the week, though, temperatures are expected to be close to 50 degrees.
