Slick roads possible this morning (3/24/14)

Weather

March 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

LIGHT SNOW FELL OVER PORTIONS OF THE STATE OVERNIGHT. THE HEAVIEST
SNOW FELL ALONG A CORRIDOR FROM SAC CITY THROUGH THE DES MOINES
METRO AREA SOUTHEAST TOWARDS CHARITON. THE AREA OF SNOW IS
EXPECTED TO EXPAND THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS. ACUMULATIONS WILL BE
LIGHT THROUGH THE MORNING COMMUTE BUT ROAD TEMPERATURES HAVE
FALLEN BELOW FREEZING AND THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR THE FALLING
SNOW TO CREATE SLICK SPOTS ON ROADWAYS…ESPECIALLY WHERE SOME
MELTING MAY HAVE OCCURRED FROM EARLIER SNOWFALL. LESSER TRAVELED
ROADS AND OVERPASSES WILL ALSO BE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE TO SLICK
SPOTS.

DRIVE SLOWLY AND ALLOW EXTRA TRAVEL TIME DURING THE MORNING
COMMUTE AND BE SURE TO ALLOW EXTRA SPACE BETWEEN YOURSELF AND THE
VEHICLE AHEAD OF YOU.
