NWS: Weather summary

A powerful cold front is bringing below freezing temperatures as it sweeps through eastern Iowa and western Illinois. A wintry mix of light freezing rain, sleet, and snow is expected behind the cold front.

Initially, this will melt on the warm pavement, but as temperatures plunge into the teens and 20s, any wet pavement that is not treated will freeze into ice, creating hazardous travel especially during the evening commute.

The icy roads will linger into this evening as the wintry precipitation ends.

Total sleet and snow accumulations of up to 1 inch and ice accumulations under a tenth of an inch are expected.
