Chilly Rain Showers Sunday Evening


A light, but steady, rain continues to fall Sunday evening across much of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Temperatures have cooled off into the low 30s in a few spots, causing either a mix or changeover to light snow. Both Freeport and Monroe are reporting flurries/light snow with visibility falling under two miles. Any snow that does fall won’t add up to much and will likely melt once it reaches the ground.

Most of the precipitation will be wrapping up between 8pm and 9pm, but drizzle will be likely through the night. Cloud cover will remain thick through Monday morning and with temperatures cooling down to freezing, freezing drizzle may occur in some locations. It’s not expected to be heavy or widespread, but some slick spots for the morning commute will be possible. Dry air moves in by sunrise Monday bringing an end to most of the precipitation. Skies are expected to remain mostly cloudy through the afternoon.
