Here Comes the Snow

Forecasters say much of Iowa is seeing snowflakes fly today while south-central Iowa could get as much as eight or nine inches of snow by Wednesday morning.

Meteorologist Jim Lee at the National Weather Service says there will be snow off-and-on much of the day, with heavier snow late this afternoon. By this evening, he says the big problem will be the winds whipping up the new-fallen flakes…

“We’re looking for increasing northwest-to-north winds tonight, particularly after sunset, reaching speeds of 15 to 25 miles an hour with higher gusts tonight,” Lee says. “We’re not expecting blizzard conditions but we will see some blowing and drifting of snow that will primarily effect travel.”

When the snow quits flying, Lee says the frigid weather will settle in.

As for our area, we are under a Winter Storm Warning until noon tomorrow.
