Special Statement
Issued: 5:48 AM CST Feb. 23, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Slippery travel and ponding water...

An area of moderate to locally heavy rain will continue to lift
north across the area over the next few hours. With temperatures
at the freezing mark this will lead to freezing rain and slick
travel conditions. Many roads are reported to be at least
partially covered in ice and slush north of Highway 30 in eastern
Iowa, and Road conditions are deteriorating into northwest
Illinois as the freezing rain increases. Lesser traveled or
untreated roadways will be especially icy and hazardous. In
addition, due to the heavy rate much of the rain will runoff and
result in standing water especially where storm drains may be
blocked by snow and ice. If be driving this morning be sure to
slow down, give yourself plenty of braking distance, and allow
plenty of time to reach your destination. Remember, never drive
through flooded roadways.
