...Increased Blowing Snow late This Evening...

As the snow diminishes late this evening, a cold front will pass
through central Iowa. Strong northwest winds will occur on the
backside of this front with the initial surge of cold air. With
the increasing winds, the fluffy loose snow which just fell will
be lofted reducing visibilities to below one half mile for about
an hour after passage. Once the snow begins to compact,
visibilities should increase within an hour after passage although
remaining from 1 to 3 miles in rural areas for much of the night.
Be prepared for reduced visibilities, especially in the immediate
wake of the frontal passage.
