URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service Des Moines IA 1115 AM CST Thu Dec 8 2022 ...Hazardous travel from wintry weather later today into tonight... .A broad swath of precipitation will overspread the state this afternoon and evening. Temperatures near to below freezing will favor wintry precipitation types over northern into western Iowa. The bulk of the snowfall accumulations are expected across northern Iowa, where 3 to 5 inches should be common by late Friday morning. The snow will create areas of hazardous travel conditions due to slick and covered roads along with visibility reductions. Just to the south, roughly between Highway 3 and Highway 30, a glaze of ice mixed in with the snow is possible. This would lead to slick conditions, particularly on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses.
