Watches & Warnings

Winter Storm Warning
Issued: 4:12 AM CST Jan. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Winter Storm Warning in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to
6 PM CST Wednesday...

The National Weather Service in Des Moines has issued a Winter
Storm Warning for snow and blowing snow, which is in effect
from 3 PM this afternoon to 6 PM CST Wednesday. The Winter
Weather Advisory is no longer in effect.

* Timing... snow will spread west to east across portions of
central Iowa this afternoon. It may mix with some rain at times
this afternoon and evening before changing over to all snow
late tonight into Wednesday. Blowing and drifting snow is also
anticipated Wednesday as the wind increases.

* Storm total snow accumulations... 4 to 8 inches of snow. The
heaviest amounts expected toward the northern side of the
counties with lesser amounts further south. The snow may be wet
and heavy initially into tonight.

* Winds/visibility... northwest winds may gust to 30 to 40 mph
during the day Wednesday. Substantial visibility restrictions
due to snowfall Tuesday night and then blowing and drifting snow
Wednesday are likely.

* Impacts... roads will become slick and snow covered. The snow and
blowing snow will create visibility restrictions and the
combination of these elements will lead to hazardous travel
conditions. This system will likely impact both the evening
commute tonight and the morning commute on Wednesday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather
conditions are expected. Significant amounts of snow are forecast
that will make travel dangerous. Only travel in an emergency. If
you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in your
vehicle in case of an emergency. Strong winds are also possible.
This will make travel very hazardous or impossible.
