Freezing drizzle and snow is starting the work week for most Iowans. A Winter Weather Advisory covers much of the state until 9 A.M. Miles Schumacher, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, says the roads and sidewalks are very slick after a light coating of ice overnight.
He says there was a lot of freezing drizzle overnight over a wide section of the state. Schumacher says the weather will be changing mid-morning, but not exactly for the better.
After the current freezing drizzle moves past us, there’s a strong possibility of very cold air coming in behind it, knocking temperatures tonight down very low, likely below zero, with wind chills of around 20-below zero.
