A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from before sunrise until about noon Wednesday for a good portion of the Chicago area along and north of Interstate-80 (purple-shaded area on the headlined map).

Freezing rain could cause a glaze to form on highways, bridges, streets, sidewalks and parking areas, making for dangerous driving as well as walking.  So plan for a slow drive during the Wednesday morning commute and watch your step if you are outside.

Temperature should warm above freezing by late morning, beginning the melting process.
