Our KCAU 9 live truck has been out in the ice, untouched all morning… And look at the glaze! Ice covers the truck, icicles hanging off the front bumper and headlights. Ice piled up on the windshield.
The rain and freezing rain pushes out of the area tonight. It’ll continue to sprinkle that wintry mix until about midnight before it pushes out of Siouxland, leaving only clouds behind tomorrow.
The next threat with this system however comes with likely refreezing. With all the puddles of rain and slush, and temperatures dipping below freezing, refreezing is likely…bringing another round of slick spots tonight and early tomorrow.
Communication with this system was essential as precipitation type varied greatly from rain, to freezing rain, and some sleet. That communication was made easier by our KCAU 9 Weather App Storm Pins!
Thank you to all those who sent in their photos. The photos of the icicles were beautiful, the ones of the icy roads were telling. If you haven’t submitted your photo yet, download the app and do it now!
