Freezing drizzle will develop on Monday morning, then change to snow by Monday evening with blowing snow across northern Iowa. Accumulations will be light, but ice and snow covered roads will cause travel difficulties.
A winter weather advisory will be in effect from 6am Monday to midnight Monday night. Freezing drizzle will begin around sunrise Monday and may cause icy roads during the morning commute. Mixed light precipitation will continue through the day, then change to light snow during the afternoon and evening.
Ice amounts of a few hundredths of an inch will be possible, with snow amounts around an inch or less. Winds will turn to the northwest and increase to 15 to 20-mph and will be gusty by late in the day. Visibility may be reduced to a mile or less at times while snow is falling.
Roads will become slick in the morning, particularly where not treated, causing hazardous driving conditions. Road conditions may improve for a time around midday but then deteriorate as snow and blowing snow begin in the afternoon and evening.
A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet, or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
