We’ve seen no major issues on the highways around the Chicago area.

But that’s not the case when you head south on I-57.

The right lane looks clean for the most part, but the left lane has patches of snow and ice.

State police report at least 80 cars wound up in ditches near Kankakee.

The Kankakee’s Sheriff’s Department says they’ve assisted 300 drivers since Sunday night.
