Issued: 10:22 PM CST Feb. 8, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Winter Weather Advisory now in effect until 4 am CST Tuesday...

* short term trends... conditions will slowly improve overnight.
Visibilities will gradually increase after snow showers end
later this evening. However... strong northwest winds will
continue to produce blowing and drifting snow... gradually
diminishing toward morning.

* Winds/visibility... northwest winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 45
mph. Visibility will be reduced to below two miles at times and
cause significant reductions in visibility at ground level.
Winds will lessen to 20 to 25 mph with occasional higher gusts
by sunrise.

* Impacts... travel is not advised over portions of northern Iowa
due to considerable blowing snow and restricted visibilities. At
this time Interstate 35 remains closed from Ames to Clear Lake.
Blowing and drifting snow will also cause slick roads and
dangerous travel.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory for blowing snow means that blowing
snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered
roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while driving
especially in open areas.

Any reports of blowing snow and reduced visibility are much
appreciated and can be relayed directly to the National Weather
Service using twitter handle NWS Des Moines... hashtag nwsdmx or
Post to the NWS Des Moines facebook Page.
