The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Ford and Iroquois counties from 12 p.m. Friday until 12 a.m. Saturday. Accumulating snow is expected for the final weekend of the year. The heavier amounts will likely be focused on the US 30 and Interstate 80 corridors, where snowfall rates of an inch or more per hour will lead to rapid accumulation and very poor visibility for the evening commute.

By midnight most of the snow has moved east into Ohio.
