Winter Storm Warning

Statement as of 11:00 AM CST on February 01, 2015

Expires 10:00 PM EST on February 01, 2015


... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 9 PM CST this
evening...

* short term trends... widespread light to moderate snow will
continue with steadily increasing winds across northern and
western Iowa. Winds will increase this afternoon regionwide. An
additional two to four inches of snow is possible through this
evening.

* Storm total snow... accumulations of generally 8 to 12 inches.
Some locations over central Iowa will receive over a foot of
snow.

* Winds/visibility... winds gradually increasing and becoming
northerly by afternoon. Gusts increasing to 35 to 40 over the
entire area by early to mid afternoon. Winds will remain strong
through early evening.

* Temperatures... temperatures will continue to fall through the
afternoon hours into the lower to mid teens by evening. Along
with that wind chill values will drop to 5 to 10 below zero
over the northern half of Iowa and just below zero over
central and southern Iowa by late afternoon.

* Impacts... roads will remain snow covered and slick with
hazardous driving conditions. Blowing and drifting snow will
become more significant this afternoon. Visibilities will drop
below one half mile with near whiteout conditions at times...
especially in open and rural areas. The heavy wet nature of the
snow has also coated trees over central and southern Iowa. Tree
damage and localized power outages will be more likely as the
winds increase this afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather
conditions are occurring. Significant amounts of snow have fallen
making 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.

Although the heavy wet consistency of the snow will diminish
... Around six to nine inches of wet snow will have compacted and
settled. This will make removal and shoveling difficult...
especially with the stronger winds and colder temperatures this
afternoon and evening. The elderly and those with heart concerns
should take frequent breaks... remove the snow in small amounts or
seek assistance.
