...Winter Storm into Wednesday Morning...
.Another winter storm will bring accumulating snow and a wintry
mix to portions of Iowa and Illinois. The heaviest precipitation
will fall this afternoon through tonight. Due to temperatures
near or slightly above freezing, there will be a very tight
gradient in snowfall accumulations on the southern edge of the
moderate to heavy snow band.
For areas that rise above freezing, pavement temperatures will be
slow to respond because of the very cold conditions the past
several days. This increases the risk for light icing amounts
from freezing rain. Temperatures will quickly fall through the
20s and into the 10s tonight, which will keep roads hazardous
into Wednesday morning. Areas that change to all rain today will
change to snow tonight as temperatures fall through the 20s with
roads becoming ice covered and hazardous.
* WHAT...Heavy mixed precipitation. Storm total snow accumulations
of 4 to 7 inches and ice accumulations of up to one tenth of an
inch. There will be a sharp gradient in snow amounts from
Washington, Iowa to Sterling, Illinois.
* WHERE...In Iowa, Muscatine, Scott and Washington Counties. In
Illinois, Whiteside and Rock Island Counties.
* WHEN...Until 9 AM CST Wednesday.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions. The
hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening
commute. Winds will also be on the increase late tonight into

A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet
and ice will make travel very hazardous or impossible.
