NWS DesMoines (Central Iowa)
...Hazardous Travel For This Evening Commute As Snow Becomes Common Across Central and Southern Iowa... .Within the last hour, snow has started to become more common as stronger lift moves into southern and central Iowa. This is causing freezing drizzle to change over to snow over these areas. Farther north, patchy freezing drizzle may still mix with light snow or flurries. Going forward, snow is expected to be the dominant precipitation type over central and southern Iowa with some periods of moderate to locally heavy snow, including during this evening's rush hour. This will create snow covered and slippery roads and thus hazardous travel. Winds are increasing over western Iowa causing blowing snow and this trend of increasing winds and blowing snow will continue to advance eastward through the remainder of the afternoon into the evening. ...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 AM CST WEDNESDAY...

* WHAT...Mixed precipitation. Additional snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches common and ice accumulations of around one tenth of an inch.

* WHERE...Parts of Central Iowa.

* WHEN...Until 6 AM CST Wednesday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions. Patchy blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous conditions will impact this evening's commute.
