...Light freezing rain possible this evening...
Precipitation will likely develop across all of northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana later this evening into early Thursday morning...but expected to be mainly all rain during this period. However...temperatures will be at or slightly below freezing this evening before a steady rise into the mid and upper 30s occurs through early Thursday morning. This could provide a small window for light freezing rain mainly for areas north of Interstate 80...and especially near the Illinois and Wisconsin border. If this freezing rain were to occur...any ice accumulation would be light and at most a glaze. Nonetheless...this could create patchy slick conditions especially on untreated roadways...parking lots and sidewalks.
