An upper level storm system tracked east across the Great Plains and Midwest Sunday morning, bringing precipitation to much of Missouri, southeast Iowa, west central and northwest Illinois.  Freezing rain was the dominant precipitation type, with many areas south of I-80 seeing at least a glaze of ice on area roads and sidewalks.  Many accidents were reported to the Iowa and Illinois Department of Transportation and travel was not advised late Sunday morning and early afternoon.  Southeast Iowa and west central Illinois saw even higher freezing rain amounts, with ice thicknesses around a tenth of an inch.
