In the first weeks of the New Year, Mother Nature doesn't seem to want to give the Chicago area a break.
A deep freeze settled on the area Sunday and has remained for most of this week. As temperatures finally begin to creep up into the teens, parts of the area could see a wintry mix Thursday afternoon with freezing drizzle also possible during the afternoon and into Thursday night. The freezing rain could continue into Friday morning.
This could make for slippery roadways, especially on untreated areas and elevated surfaces, and dicey conditions during Thursday evening and Friday morning commutes.
