Falling temperatures could cause slick spots on roads

Posted: Updated:

The falling temperatures Sunday night into Monday could possibly force roadways that look to be in good shape to refreeze.

Saturday and Sunday many in eastern Iowa spent time clearing snow, including Maria Haberer.

When it comes to snow, Haberer loves pretty much loves everything about it.

"Very light and very fluffy," said Haberer. "Yeah I love snow."

She's spent a lot of time shoveling and clearing her driveway, but when it come's to driving in the light and fluffy stuff, Coralville resident Nicole Barry doesn't like it.

"Driving no, I do not like it, but we do live in Iowa and it is November," said Barry

Sunday afternoon roads in Coralville appeared to be dry and drivers were getting by fine.

Like Haberer cleared her driveway, the sun, salt and crews cleared the streets..

Temperatures haven't gone above freezing so puddles and areas of melted snow may be a problems Sunday night and for the Monday morning commute.

The falling temperatures and the arctic front slamming our area, even salted roads could refreeze.

"That was freezing right away so I think there was a glaze on the road." said Haberer.

Gusty winds won't make the roads any better because there could be blowing snow.

In winter conditions, allow yourself some extra time because there still could be slick spots on the roads.
