The snow may not be over yet with chances for more tonight and Sunday, then warmer temperatures are forecast for next week.

About 5 1/2 inches of snow fell in the Stateline Area overnight, causing some hazardous travel conditions and keeping area snow plow crews busy.

City of Beloit Interim Director of Operations and Parks Jodi Saunders said Beloit saw around six inches of snow, with full plow operations into Friday.

"It was coming down pretty hard, so they kept going over the main streets," Saunders said. "We had to make sure the roads are open for emergency responders."

The city ran 11 plows and used 250 tons of salt, a typical amount used during a weather event, Saunders said.

Saunders said next week's possibly warmer weather is a welcome prospect for city workers.

"They get tired just like anyone else," Saunders said. "They've done great work, and it takes the entire city to handle these types of events."

The following school districts had canceled school: Beloit, Beloit Turner, South Beloit, Rockton, Hononegah, Parkview, Kinnikinnick, Shirland and Clinton. There is a 40 percent chance of light snow tonight. Low temperatures will be around 6 degrees with north winds at 5 to 10 mph.

There is a 30 percent chance of light snow Saturday. Highs will be around 18 with northwest winds around 5 mph. Low temperatures Saturday night will be around 8 degrees with northwest winds at about 5 degrees.

Sunday will be partly sunny with high temperatures in the lower 20s with west winds at 5 to 10 mph Lows Sunday night will be around 1 degree below zero.
