❄❄❄Accumulating Snowfall with Gusty Winds Tonight Through Friday❄❄❄
A multi-faceted winter storm will pass through the state starting tonight and lasting through Friday. Snowfall amounts from 5 to 10 inches are expected over much of central Iowa along with winds gusting over 40 mph Friday afternoon into early Saturday. The combination of gusty winds, snow on the ground from the previous winter storm, and new, fluffy snow falling tonight into Friday will lead to a significant blowing snow threat on Friday into Saturday. The blowing and drifting snow may lead to near-whiteout conditions, especially in open and rural areas with the hazardous conditions continuing well beyond the end of the falling snow. Therefore, hazardous travel conditions are expected through much of the state on Friday, including both the morning and evening commutes, with impacts extending into at least early Saturday. Temperatures will also fall to the single digits above or below zero by early Saturday with wind chills near to well below zero by Friday night, adding an extra layer of risk to travel on Friday.
