Bitter Cold & Snow

This weekend, we will have the snow and cold to deal with. Light snow will begin to move into northwest Iowa during the late afternoon hours Saturday, and will push off to the southeast during the overnight hours. Light snowfall accumulations will be possible across the southwest half of the state. Snowfall accumulations will range from 1″ to 2″ with isolated 3″ totals across west central Iowa. Snowfall will exit the state by sunrise Sunday.

This will create slick roads by Sunday morning as gusty winds will create blowing snow and some reduced visibilities. Waking up Sunday morning, it will be very frigid.

Wind chills Sunday morning will range from 20 to 40 below zero. With wind chills this low, frost bite can occur in 10 minutes. We will likely see wind chill advisories and warnings be issued by tomorrow morning.
