Crews are out and have been working hard since the wee hours of the morning clearing roads in Rockford, but thanks to Mother Nature's constant slew of snowflakes, keeping the roads clear is next to impossible.

If you don't have to go anywhere today, don't, especially this morning. Road conditions in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin are not good, and this map shared by Eyewitness News Chief Meteorologist Candice King proves it:


The roads in Rockford may be slightly terrible right now, but don't blame that on our plow crews. They have been out there working hard FOR HOURS to make sure we are safe, and for that I am incredibly thankful. Due to their devotion, my knuckles were slightly less white while driving to work this morning.
