With freezing rain, sleet and snow in the forecast for Saturday night, Illinois State Police have issued a driving advisory for motorists over the weekend.
The alert reads: "Extreme caution is advised if you have to travel on the roadway over the next few days. Take the following precautions: ensure you and your passengers are properly wearing seat belts; slow down to a safe speed; allow plenty of distance to safely maneuver; ensure you have your driving lights on to see as well as be seen; exit the road or pull into a rest area if the conditions become too hazardous. Although snow fall may not be heavy, when mixed with blowing winds, it may be difficult to see and visibility may be significantly reduced."
