Ice storm cometh - 1/4 inch of ice Tuesday in Des Moines

DES MOINES, Iowa A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect at 9 PM Monday night through Noon Tuesday.

It is starting off warm and wet this morning. WHO Channel 13 meteorologist Jeriann Ritter says we will be in the upper 30s in Central Iowa for a majority of the day.  Northern and northwestern Iowa will stay near freezing, so freezing rain is possible in those parts of the state with less than a tenth of an inch of ice there. Liquid rain will continue to fall early Monday morning in Central and Southern Iowa and temperatures will be in the 40s.

Ice Monday night into Tuesday morning

Another push of rain will lift north tonight. This will hit colder air over central Iowa and become freezing rain. Ice accumulation looks to be higher with this second batch in Central Iowa with up to 1/4 inch of ice possible. This will lead to icy roads, power lines, and trees through early Tuesday.  Temperatures will hover at 30 degrees through the day.

Wednesday will be drier – cold on Wednesday in the 20s and close to 40 by Thursday. There is another chance of both rain and snow by Friday morning.
