1105 AM CST Tue Jan 24 2017

Cloudy skies have been in place across the state throughout the
morning hours. Areas of light fog was spread over the southern half of
the state with patchy flurries. Early morning lows were in the upper
20s to lower 30s. Temperatures changed very little across the state
throughout the morning due to the cloud cover.

Low pressure was centered over central Kansas this morning. The low
will track across Kansas, Missouri and Illinois the remainder of today
into Wednesday. Precipitation will overspread the state today and
continue into Wednesday as a large winter storm system impacts much of
the region. Moderate to heavy snowfall is expected across the
northwestern to northern portions of the state, with a rain or snow
mix across central and east central Iowa and mainly rain across
southern Iowa. Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories are
in effect for portions of central and northern Iowa for today into
Wednesday. Precipitation is expected to changeover to all snow for
much of the state into Wednesday. Gusty winds are also expected
creating areas of blowing and drifting snow which could lead to
hazardous travel across portions of central and northern Iowa into
Wednesday. Mainly quiet conditions are then expected for late this
week, with colder temperatures.
