      Updated Sunday, February 18, 2018

      A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect from 6 AM to 6 PM Monday for Chickasaw and Winneshiek counties. This is for the potential of freezing rain.

      A WINTER STORM WATCH for ice is in effect Monday evening through Tuesday for Allamakee, Benton, Black Hawk, Bremer, Buchanan, Butler, Chickasaw, Clayton, Delaware, Fayette, Grundy and Tama counties.

      Tonight: Mostly cloudy with temperatures in the lower to middle 30s, and a southeast wind 5-15 mph.  Rain begins to track in after 3 AM from southeast to northeast.  Freezing rain is possible north of Highway 20, causing slick spots early Monday morning.

      Monday: Wide range of weather across the area.  Freezing rain will be a possibility in our northwestern counties, causing issues on the roadways.  Ice accumulations will be 0.10" or less  Rain is likely from Elkader, to Oelwein, to Waterloo, to Tama and southeast.  A few thunderstorms are possible from Cedar Rapids and points to the south.  Temperatures range from the middle 30s north, to middle 50s south.

      Rain will continue across the southeastern half of the area through the evening and overnight.  Northwestern counties will dry out by early evening, before the next surge of moisture moves in by late evening.  Freezing rain is likely north of Highway 20, including Waterloo, with rain likely south of Highway 20.  This will continue into at least Tuesday morning, causing major issues for the Tuesday commute.  Ice accumulations: 0.10" to 0.25" Rain accumulations: 0.25" northwest to 1.00" southeast, locally higher amounts.

      The wind will also pick up out of the northwest, 5-15 mph, which could cause power outages with the ice weighing down power lines.

      There is still a potential the timing and position of the freezing rain can change, so please stay up to date with the latest forecasts on KWWL.
