Ice Storm Warning Expanded

A strong winter storm remains on track for much of Iowa tonight into Monday. A wintry mix is possible when precipitation begins, but will transition to freezing rain across much of the state. The period of most impactful weather is expected later tonight through Monday, where significant amounts of freezing rain are possible resulting in extremely hazardous travel conditions.

Light freezing rain and sleet has already started near the Missouri border, and the precipitation should switch to all freezing rain by later this afternoon through Monday.

Ice accumulations from two to four tenths of an inch are forecasted. Winds should be fairly light, east to southeast at 5 to 10-mph, helping reduce tree and power line impacts.

Extremely hazardous travel due to ice covered and very slick roads. Sidewalks and parking lots will be slick. Tree damage and power outages are possible.
