Freezing Rain/Sleet Will Cut Into Any Snowfall AccumulationsJanuary 13th, 2013 at 3:33 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Soundings point toward a largely freezing rain/sleet event & not much snow. It appears the ice will cut into snow accumulation.
Nonetheless, accumulating ice continues area-wide & road condition will worsen this evening, despite the precipitation winding down from west to east.
As of 3:30 p.m. we have 0.12″ glaze & a light dusting of sleet. Icicles on the mailboxes, trees & powerlines are up to 1.5″ long.
Back edge of precipitation is on I-57 in eastern Illinois, but that last band is all snow & moderate to heavy snow at that.
