More snow causes travel issues Wednesday morning

As expected, snow has fallen overnight all across central Iowa. This has created travel hazards throughout the region as well.

As of 6:00am, most of the roads were entirely snow-covered, and the snow isn’t done just yet! 

Yes, we realize that we did not get nearly as much snow as what we originally predicted. But hey in this case, that’s a good thing, right? Plus, it is still causing these issues for the morning commute, so it should still be taken seriously.

Here’s a look at some of the cameras from early this morning across central Iowa.

Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Tuesday night through Wednesday afternoon for most of central and northern Iowa. Southern Iowa is now under a Winter Weather Advisory

Light icy spots will be possible and some breezy winds could add to the issues.

Travel will remain hazardous throughout Wednesday morning. Road conditions will slowly improve late Wednesday as we dry out in the afternoon.

Des Moines has received 19.4″ of snow in February. Once this storm is finished, this will likely become the metro’s snowiest February since records began in the late 1800s.
