Experts suggest "postponing non-essential travel" until the snow lets up, as the quickly accumulating snow has the potential to make travel on the highways hard. Furthermore, Rockford, South Beloit, and Beloit already have declared snow emergencies. As warmer air pushes north, the snow will change to freezing rain or sleet along Interstate 70 between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. The declaration may be extended based on the duration of this event, arriving conditions, and increasing confidence in the snowfall forecast for Saturday. Vehicles parked on posted snow routes will be ticketed and may be towed.
