SHARE Snow, sleet, freezing rain could make for dicey Tuesday morning commute

A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain will make Tuesday morning’s commute hazardous.

A winter weather advisory will be in effect from 3 a.m. until noon Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

The wintry mix of precipitation will begin overnight as snow, especially north of Interstate 80, according to the weather service. One to 2 inches of snow could fall near the Wisconsin border, and about an inch of snow is expected in the Chicago area.

As the morning continues and temperatures warm, the snow will transition to sleet or freezing rain.

The wet snow combined with slippery roads and limited visibility could lead to a hazardous commute.

The high Tuesday is expected to reach 35 or 40 degrees, according to the weather service. By the afternoon, the precipitation will transition to light rain or drizzle in Chicago.

The relative warmth won’t last long though. Wednesday’s forecast: partly sunny with a high near 17 degrees.
