    Light rain descended on the area overnight as temperatures hovered near freezing, sending salt trucks out onto area roadways.

    Making travel even more difficult, a Dense Fog Advisory remained in effect for McHenry, Boone and DeKalb counties until 10 a.m. The alert warned of reduced visibility and areas of fog and freezing fog likely.

    “Below-freezing temperatures could cause some moisture to freeze on roads and walkways, so caution should be exercised this morning,” the alert read.
