Freezing Drizzle Will Develop Over Parts of Western Iowa

Areas of drizzle will change to freezing drizzle this morning with ice accumulation mainly confined to elevated surfaces, including bridges. As temperatures fall later today, road temperatures will also fall and will have further slick spots on roads and additional ice accumulation. Because of this, a winter weather advisory has been issued until 9pm this evening.

The ice will result in slick spots on roadways and especially elevated surfaces such as bridges, including during the evening commute. Total ice accumulations of up to one tenth of an inch are expected. While travel may not be impacted as much due to warm road surface temperatures, air and road temperatures will fall later today into tonight resulting in slippery road conditions.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads. Slow down and use caution while driving. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.
