URGENT – WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO IL
314 PM CST SAT JAN 26 2013

Currently the greatest chance for freezing rain and ice accumulation is forecast to occur between I-80 and the Illinois-Wisconsin state line (with greater accumulation likely far north). Temperatures are expected to hold steady at 17-18°F from about 8 p.m. until 2:00 a.m., then temperatures are expected to rise. Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing in Arlington Heights at about 8:00 p.m. Sunday. The freezing rain could begin at 9:00 a.m., but is expected to begin after 12 noon. Precipitation is expected to changeover to all rain between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Sunday.

Southern regions of Chicagoland (south of Beecher to Streator) have already been alerted to a Feezing Rain Advisory — a lesser threat than the Winter Storm Watch. The northern suburbs may be switched to a Freezing Rain Advisory if the threat for significant ice accumulation decreases.
