    A Winter Weather Advisory was also issued from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. Wednesday for Kankakee County in Illinois, plus Kenosha County, Wisconsin, as well as Lake and Porter counties in northwest Indiana, where less ice and more rain is expected.

    Significant icing is expected for areas mainly along and north of I-80, with ice accumulations between one-tenth to four-tenths of an inch expected. The highest ice amounts look to be along and northwest of a line from Streator to Morris to Joliet to downtown Chicago, Storm Team 5 warned.

    The National Weather Service strongly discouraged travel while the Ice Storm Warning is in effect, as roads will be dangerous.
