A nasty combination of freezing rain and snow will overspread the area today. Winter Storm Warnings are in place for areas north of the Quad Cities.

Where there is a mixture of freezing rain and snow, there will be more slush. Ice accumulations up to a few tenths are possible from Dixon to Burlington, right over the US-34 corridor.

Bottom line: Don't travel this afternoon and tonight for areas north of the Quad Cities, unless it's essential. Don't get the false sense of security that this is a dud just because you're not seeing much this afternoon. Keep in mind that this lasts until about 6:00am Wednesday morning.

We'll be here to cover it all between now and then.
