(AP) — Iowans hoping that March would usher in warmer, spring-like weather following what has been a brutal winter were no doubt disappointed Saturday.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for much of the state for Saturday overnight into Sunday.
Parts of the state are expected to get about half-a-foot of snow, although northeast Iowa should get only 2 to 3 inches. Locally, we averaged 3 inches-plus.
Along with the snow will be more bitter cold. Temperatures were not expect to rise about single digits in many areas Saturday, and were expected to drop well below zero on Sunday. Wind chills could range from 20 to 30 below zero, creating dangerous outdoor conditions.
