Good morning all!

The Winter Weather Advisory has expired for Henry (Iowa), Des Moines, Henderson, Warren, and Knox Counties. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through noon today for all other counties. Freezing rain will be a big part of our morning commute with temperatures hovering right around 32 degrees. As of 10 AM, we're seeing the freezing rain transitioning to rain. However, expect some icy conditions throughout the rest of the morning. Still take caution if you need to head out!
