Other affected areas include: Joliet, Chicago, Aurora, DeKalb, Wheaton, Ottawa and Morris.
Also, "very cold temperatures will make regular non-treated road salt less effective," the weather service said.
Tonight's low will be -3 degrees with windchill, relatively balmy compared to the -15 degrees with windchill expected during the day Wednesday. Without windchill temperatures are expected at 11 degrees tonight.
Fortunate we have mid-20's to look forward to during the weekend.
