... Blizzard Warning remains in effect until midnight CST

* short term trends... snow will pick back up in intensity this
morning as another round of snow moves across the warning area.
Visibilities will lower as the snow increases with visibilities
below one half mile common and reductions below one quarter from
time to time in blizzard conditions, mainly in open,rural
areas.

* Additional snow accumulations... 2 to 4 inches.

* Winds/visibility... northerly winds at 20 to 30 mph with gusts
near 40 mph. Visibility will be reduced below one half mile for
long periods with occasional white-out conditions, especially
in rural areas.

* Impacts... travel has become very dangerous to near impossible
as blowing and drifting snow reduces visibility today. Many
Tow bans are in effect across northern Iowa with travel not
advised along Interstate 35 from Story City north to the
Minnesota border.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds
and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout
conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If
you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get
stranded, stay with your vehicle.
