Winter Weather Advisory issued for Saturday morning

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Lee County from 3am-9am Saturday and for Whiteside County from 12am-10am Saturday.

A mix of rain, freezing rain, and sleet will overspread the area after midnight tonight continuing until mid-morning Saturday. Minor ice accumulations up to a tenth of an inch will be likely causing any untreated surface to become slick. Other surfaces such as power lines will likely build up a light glaze of ice.

Temperatures will rise above freezing by the mid-morning and early afternoon limiting any further ice threat for the remainder of the day.

If you plan to travel Saturday morning, leave extra time to reach your destination safely.
