More travel problems Sunday for eastern Iowans

AMES (KWWL) -- A mix of snow and ice on roadways in the eastern half of the state continue to present travel problems Sunday morning. Travel conditions should improve by late morning as road temperatures reach above freezing.

The Iowa Department of Transportation is issuing the following forcasted travel conditions for the affected areas.

East central: Road temperatures are expected to reach above freezing around 11 a.m. Sunday morning, which will help melt off ice/snow from the roadways. Formation of frost on roads and bridges is possible beginning around 7 p.m. this evening through 6 a.m. Monday.

Northeast: Road temperatures are expected to be above freezing for a brief period from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday. This will help to begin melting precipitation from the roadways. Areas of refreezing and frost on roads and bridges are possible beginning at 5 p.m. Sunday through 6 a.m. Monday.

Southeast: Road temperatures should reach above freezing beginning around 10 a.m. Sunday morning, which will help melt off ice and slush from the roadways. Areas of frost on roads and bridges is possible beginning at 6 p.m. Sunday evening through the overnight hours.
