Blizzard Warning

Statement as of 4:15 AM CST on February 24, 2017

Expires 1:00 AM EST on February 25, 2017


... Blizzard Warning remains in effect until midnight CST
tonight...

* short term trends... there will be little change in conditions
this morning with blizzard conditions continuing. Wind gusts
will often reach 35 to 40 mph and while additional snow will be
intermittent and light to moderate through the morning, the
combination of new snow with already fallen snow will produce
near whiteout conditions.

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

* Winds/visibility... northerly winds at 20 to 30 mph with gusts
near 45 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.
