CHICAGO – Chicago drivers are advised to travel carefully overnight as a mixture of freezing rain, sleet and snow hits the city.

The National Weather Service warned that roads may be icy and visibility low during a Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 9 p.m. Saturday through 9 a.m. Sunday.

Sleet is expected to fall between 8 and 10 p.m. and turn into a “sleet snow mix” as temperatures fall below freezing between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.

Roads may be especially icy after midnight as snow and sleet continues to fall. One to two inches of snow is expected to accumulate.

“Spotty freezing drizzle” is expected from 4 a.m. through Sunday morning, the advisory said.
