Iowa roads slick with freezing precipitation

DOT says to postpone travel if possible

AMES, Iowa (AP) The Iowa Department of Transportation says precipitation is instantly freezing to windshields and roadways, making for slick travel conditions.

The department said in a news release Sunday morning that a mix of drizzle and heavy rain is moving through the state.

It also said that crews are trying to de-ice and sand roads, bridges and ramps.

The department says it's best to postpone travel if possible until the front moves out.

A freezing rain advisory has been issued for most of Iowa, and the northeast part of the state is under a winter weather warning.
