There are multiple reports of slick roads because of the freezing rain. A wintry mix is forecast off and on Saturday, which means problems could persist for a large part of the day. Lincoln Land Community College called off Saturday classes at all locations. For more info on weather-related closings, click here.

This weekend’s winter weather is just a taste of what could still be waiting for us over the next few weeks. The National Weather Service is predicting a colder and wetter than average February. And the next big blast of winter could be right around the corner. More snow is expected Tuesday, with a possibility of several inches of accumulation Tuesday night.
