A Special Announcement from the JCA Weather Club:

Good morning, this is the JCA weather club with a special weather statement. Along with the Joliet Weather Center, here is some important weather info for today.

Another minor storm system will be moving into our area today. A wintry mix of sleet, snow and freezing rain will develop by late morning-early afternoon. We should see primarily freezing rain this afternoon and evening. When this hits the ground, it will freeze and turn any surface to ice. Driving and walking may become dangerous as the day progresses. A winter weather advisory is in effect from noon to 9pm. As temperatures climb overnight, all precipitation will change to rain. Then with temperatures falling tomorrow, it will change back to wintry mix and snow. Only minor accumulations will be possible. Then the coldest air of the season arrives Thursday night and Friday with lows below zero.

Have a great day and be safe later today.

An Announcement from the Hillzone:

Tonight, the Hillmen Basketball team takes on Sandburg at home at 7pm. Go HILL!
