Widespread dense fog will continue Tuesday night, but patchy fog will continue through late tonight.
Galena and Sterling so far today have measured the most amount of rain across the Stateline. Rockford is just shy of three tenths of an inch. There is still a chance of drizzle into tonight. There was a storm that was producing half inch hail and lightning that passed through portions of Ogle, Lee, and DeKalb Counties earlier this afternoon.

Our coolest temperature across the Stateline is in Monroe at 38 with a wind chill of 30. The warmest temperature is in Sterling at 45 degrees. Wind chills are in place besides Rochelle Tuesday afternoon making it feel around 5 degrees cooler than air temperatures.
Tuesday night temperatures will fall into the mid 30s under cloudy skies. There will likely be patchy fog again tonight due to the moisture lingering. Winds will be between 5-10 mph tonight but gusts up to 15 mph. Wednesday temperatures will remain in the mid 30s with a chance of snow showers. Light snowfall accumulations are possible up to about an inch and a half into Thursday. Wind gusts Wednesday will be up to and around 20 mph. Our next chance of precipitation after Wednesday and Thursday would be Saturday.
Temperatures will remain fairly stationary over the next several days. Thursday we will be in the lower 30s, Friday and into the weekend temperatures are expected to be in the mid 30s and that pattern should continue into next week.
