Difficult Driving Monday

Many drivers finding issues on the roads this morning with freezing rain across the entire Stateline. A Winter Weather Advisory continues for the entire area until noon today. Though we will notice some improvements before that as temperatures slowly warm above freezing.

Travel is not advised through the morning, with multiple accident reports. IDOT reporting US-20 at and west of Freeport as ice covered. I-39 and portions of I-90 are partially ice covered. Side streets, along with residential and parking areas are very icy as well. Temperatures are still at or below freezing so the freezing rain potential continues.You can check current road conditions here.

To the west of the area driving conditions are even worse with Ice Storm Warnings in place through central Iowa. To the south of the area, Dense Fog Advisories are being issued with moisture trapped below warm air.

For the Stateline slick travel will continue through 11am, then it will be soggy and foggy. Scattered showers will persist through the afternoon and fog will continue to thicken, dropping visibility. Areas of rain and fog will continue through the evening and into Tuesday.
