Several inches of snow fell overnight and strong winds this morning have led to dangerous travel conditions across Western and Northwest Illinois. Several cars were found spun off into the ditch and abandoned overnight. Heavy snow was still falling as of 8:30am this morning where amounts ranged from 2 to as much as 7 inches area-wide. Near blizzard conditions were occurring as a result of 25-35 mph wind gusts and falling temperatures making matters worse.
