from the kwwl stormtrack 7 weather team. see the screen for your complete weather information. here is additional forecast information from the kwwl stormtrack 7 weather team: welcome back i am meteorologist kyle kiel. we have a winter weather advisory that will go into effect monday morning at 6 o'clock, and lasting until midnight tomorrow night. this is for freezing drizzle early in the morning, then a chance for snow in the afternoon. areas to the south will see rain mixing with then changing to snow, so the accumulation will be light. speaking of accumulation, here is the forecast as of this evening. not much change from what we showed you this morning and last night. areas in the advisory seeing one to two inches. i think the best chance to see closer to two inches is in far northeast iowa. from cedar rapids and points south, there will be a trace to about an inch. there's also the possibility of a little ice accumulation that will also create those slick spots
threat tracker is in the green tonight, but do keep in mind we will continue with areas of fog and that freezing drizzle late. that create issues on the roads for tomorrow, especially for your evening commute with the light snow falling. then tuesday will be cloudy and breezy with the potential for blowing snow. storm track 7 live doppler radar shows dry conditions across eastern iowa. mainly just patchy areas of fog, and there could be a little bit of drizzle at times. taking a wider view, our area of low pressure is spinning in colorado, but our jet stream will kick it off to the north east, and it will track across southeast iowa and western illinois tomorrow afternoon and evening
precipitation. in the short term, there are still areas of patchy fog reducing visibility. here are a look at the current visibility's. temperatures right now are in the 20s and 30s. we had a bit of sunshine earlier across the south, and that's where we have the warmest temperatures. the wind is out of the east and south which has helped keep our temperatures relatively warm. storm track 7 live weather network shows a mainly cloudy sky with just a few breaks. future track shows a mostly cloudy sky throughout the night. similar to last night, we will have just enough moisture streaming in to squeeze out some areas of patchy drizzle and mist, enough to create slick spots on untreated surfaces, including the sidewalks, and a glaze on
vehicle's wind shield. be aware of that. that trend will continue into tomorrow morning, so there could be slick spots for your morning commute. even though nothing is showing up on future track, the weekend. the annual winterfest kicks off in cedar falls. people took part in activities like ice fishing -- skating -- and cross country skiing. despite the chilly weather -- people say they had a good time. coming up after the break we'll meet iowa's first female combat engineer you're watching kwwl. we've got you covered in vinton, jesup, gilbertville and all of eastern iowa george: my family's lived on this farm for three generations. the bakken pipeline would pump dirty crude oil across iowa. patti: the fact that bernie sanders stands up against the pipeline is one of the reasons we support him.
