Meteorologist Jennifer McDermed said timing will be very important as the temperatures will start to fall rapidly through the day. Freezing rain late Monday night which will then change to rain and freezing rain by 9:00 a.m. Tuesday. The best chance for a light glazing of ice on the roads will be north of Ames.
The snow will be the heaviest along the Iowa/Minnesota border. With 1″ to 2″ possible and blowing snow reducing visibility.
