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!
Temperatures will rise above freezing around noon today, bringing an end to our icy weather. Rain will still continue through the day with highs around 38 degrees.
