Briefly Quiet Wednesday


Are you ready for a break from the crazy winter mess? We’ll get it today! Winds will still remain a little gusty at times, but we will break out into some areas of sunshine with highs reaching the middle 20s.

SIDE NOTE: Many roads, especially rural, will remain slick this morning. Use extreme caution.

Ice action on the Rock River continues to create areas of flooding in Dixon this morning. The river is currently at 16.5′, flood stage is 16′. With the recent precipitation and continued ice action, river levels will fluctuate for the next several days.

Further downstream at Como, the Rock River remains below flood stage and is not currently forecast to rise above that level in the next week.

If you have interests along the river, including in Whiteside County, you’ll want to continue monitoring these levels through the next week.
