A threat of freezing rain and significant ice accumulation exists across parts of northern IL and northwest IN tonight. Freezing rain, possibly mixed with sleet north, is expected to develop into the I-39 corridor of north central IL late this afternoon, then spread east across the remainder of the area early this evening. While temperatures will likely warm above freezing by midnight from Pontiac to Kankakee and Gary, areas farther north will see freezing rain persist through the night. Ice accumulations ranging from 0.1″ to 0.4″ are possible, which may lead to hazardous travel conditions as well as tree and power line damage.
Temperatures will continue to rise through the week as a mild pattern develops. Drizzle and light rain is expected to spread across the area Saturday afternoon through Monday. Due to the recent extreme cold, sub-freezing surfaces may results in icy conditions from the precipitation on Saturday, even after air temperatures rise above freezing.
After several days of bitterly cold conditions, temperatures will make a dramatic swing to well-above normal by early next week. Temperatures should steadily rise now through Saturday. A period of rainy weather is expected Saturday afternoon through Monday, with icy conditions possible Saturday afternoon as surfaces remain below freezing after the recent cold stretch.
Due to extreme weather and the absence of Kali Rasala who is vacationing in Costa Rica, we have delayed our shows until next week.
We will resume our show at WVLP next Wednesday at 12:00 Live. Later that day we will be videoing our show from Wildrose Brewing in Griffith with a special guest. We will also resume our show on Thursday from Sip Coffee House 2 in Highland at 1:00 pm.
Many of you have been asking about our awesome Bill and Kali Show Coffee Mugs and how they can go about purchasing one. We are working on the mugs as well as other merch such as t-shirts and golf shirts. More info to follow in the near future.
The last day of this bitter cold, Thursday, will likely start with some all-time record cold temperatures. Lows early Thursday morning will be in the -20s to -30s across the area. Some isolated readings of around -40° are possible west of the Fox Valley in Illinois. Winds will be diminished, so the wind chills will not be as low as this morning, however still to dangerous levels. The air temperatures themselves will be dangerous to spend time in if not dressed properly.
Yet another round of accumulating snow is likely Thursday PM, with probable impacts to the Thursday evening commute. The very cold temperatures during the snow will make road treatments less effective. Leave yourself extra travel time Thursday PM. Be prepared to encounter snow covered roads and slowed, possibly hazardous travel. Stay tuned for the latest forecast updates.
