A freezing rain advisory and winter storm warning are in affect for much of Iowa today.

Rain, heavy in some locations, is already falling throughout much of Iowa

A winter storm warning is in effect until midnight for the northeast corner of the state until midnight as freezing rain will be the main precipitation type.

Presently, road and pavement conditions in the far southwest corner of the state are warm enough that roads are just wet. As the storm moves northeast, the air and road temperatures are colder and a mix of freezing rain and sleet will make roads slippery quickly.

Travelers should closely monitor road and weather conditions; turn off their vehicle's cruise control; reduce speed for conditions; and put more space between their vehicle and the one ahead. Always wear you seatbelt, in all vehicle seating positions. Do not use mobile devices while driving.
