Bitterly Cold Air Returns

Some light snow ahead of a cold front that arrived just after midnight will likely keep a few slick spots on the road this morning and you may have noticed a new dusting of accumulation on the driveway.

Temperatures this afternoon will freefall by this evening and wind chills will become a concern again. A wind chill advisory begins at 9pm lasting through Thursday morning with values falling to -20.

Bitterly cold air returns to finish out the remainder of the workweek.

Andrew Stutzke was born and raised in beautiful Sterling, Illinois. As a young child, he was continually fascinated by the weather, especially thunderstorms. Often times he could be found glued to the television watching The Weather Channel. Upon entering high school it was clear what his area of study would be once he started college. After graduating from Sterling High School in 2004, he attended Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon, Illinois where he received his Associate of Science degree in 2010. In 2016 he received his B.S. in Meteorology from Northern Illinois University.

Andrew is currently the Friday and Saturday evening meteorologist at WIFR-TV in Rockford, IL.

In his spare time, Andrew enjoys listening to the latest Alt-Rock and Indie music, storm spotting, walking the many paths around the area, and spending time with family.
