The final weekend before Christmas could be sloppy for shoppers… and maddening for motorists.
A winter storm system is approaching that could smack Central Illinois with heavy rain, freezing rain or sleet, and snow at various points over the weekend.
Current models indicate the worst snow and ice may be northwest of Springfield… while the heaviest rains may stay to the southeast.
But the National Weather Service says details of the storm “continue to evolve,” meaning the forecast could change.
