More bitter cold, snow in the forecast

ROCKFORD — Below-zero temperatures continue to grip the Rockford area as another round of heavy snowfall is expected Monday afternoon.

Temps aren’t expected to break zero until around 10 a.m. with an afternoon high of 15 expected, a trend forecasters expect will continue through the rest of the week.

And weekend snowfalls will see more piled on top Monday, as 3-6 inches of snow is being called for in northern Illinois. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all areas north of I-74, extending into eastern Iowa and southern Wisconsin.




Snow will begin falling in the mid-afternoon hours, creating low-visibility and slippery road conditions for the afternoon commute. Overnight lows are expected around zero, with wind chills around minus-10.

The weather advisory will remain in place from noon to midnight Monday. More snowfall is possible Tuesday, and again as we close in on the weekend.
