... Some slick roads possible early this morning...

The first appreciable snow of the season accumulated light snow
on many roads from Audubon and Carroll... north and east toward
Forest City... Webster City... Ames and Tama. Many roads in these
areas will remain snow or slush covered with slick conditions into
the early morning hours as snow persists. An inch or two may
accumulate by daybreak... especially on vegetation where less
melting occurs.

A bit farther south along the Interstate 80 corridor... including
the Des Moines Metro area... snow was beginning to increase
somewhat. Although snow amounts here will be an inch or less... the
snow could potentially combine with cooling Road temperatures to
produce similarly snow and slush covered roads toward daybreak.

Motorists are urged to slow down... drive defensively and exercise
caution early this morning as many will be unaccustomed to winter
driving conditions.
