ELMHURST – The Chicago area is expected to experience a mix of precipitation and a severe drop in temperatures during the next few hours that could cause flash freezing of wet pavement surfaces during the evening commute.

Elmhurst residents are encouraged to avoid traveling this evening because of varying roadway conditions, a city news release stated. They are asked to use caution when walking outside because of potentially slippery conditions.

The city will conduct a full salting operation this evening to maintain safe roadway conditions, according to the release. City crews will begin salting operations as soon as the expected rain subsides and before the cold temperatures reach the area.

Main roadways will be treated first, followed by local roadways, the release stated.
