Vermilion and surrounding counties are part of the advisory area.

East-west roadways may see significant drifting of snow, especially in rural areas. Visibility may be occasionally reduced as well. Travel will be difficult or impossible on problem roadways. Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute.

Officials urge motorists to slow down and use caution while traveling. If travel is necessary, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
