Snow takes a lunch break, will resume

A snowplow clears State Street in Sycamore on Thursday morning.
A snowplow clears State Street in Sycamore on Thursday morning.

There was a lull Thursday, after the initial snowfall, during which roads were cleaned up and not a hot (er, cold) mess. More is coming, though.

The National Weather Service says flurries will resume by 2 p.m., and likely persist until about 4 p.m.

The wetness of the snow has made for slick passages, especially along backroads or, really, any road that isn't a main artery in DeKalb County. Well-intenioned drivers did about 25 mph along roads east of state Route 23, such as Somonauk and Airport roads, where the roads were snow-covered.

The temperature is expected to sit below the freezing point, so sidewalks and walkways will likely remain precarious. The good news is that winds aren't supposed to exceed 12 mph, so any drifting should be limited.

Aside from a 50 percent chance of snow Saturday, this could be our last glimpse of powder until next weekend, according to the NWS extended forecast.
