A winter storm watch has given way to a freezing rain advisory for the Plainfield area. The advisory is in effect from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
According to the National Weather Service, there is a slight chance of light freezing rain and sleet late in the morning and freezing rain early in the afternoon, with little or no sleet accumulation and ice accumulation of around one-tenth of an inch.
Since pavement and soil temperatures are below freezing, any liquid precipitation will likely freeze on contact and result in icy and dangerous travel conditions.
Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing by Sunday afternoon, with rain predicted by late afternoon and evening. Sidewalks and walkways could also become treacherous, according to the National Weather Service.
The forecast also calls for wind gusts of up to 30 mph.
