447 AM CST SUN JAN 31 2016

LIGHT RAIN MOVED ACROSS PORTIONS OF NORTHERN AND WEST CENTRAL IOWA
OVERNIGHT AS A SYSTEM ENTERED THE STATE. A FEW LOCATIONS INCLUDING
ESTHERVILLE AND SPENCER MEASURED RAIN NEAR ONE TENTH INCH. MORNING
TEMPERATURES WERE AGAIN MILD FOR JANUARY WITH READINGS IN THE 30S.
THE WIND WAS FROM THE NORTH AT 10 MPH OR LESS.

THE AREA OF LIGHT RAIN MAY MIX WITH LIGHT SNOW AS IT MOVES ACROSS
IOWA AND INTO WISCONSIN AND NORTHERN ILLINOIS TODAY. A MORE
SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM WILL IMPACT THE MIDWEST MONDAY NIGHT
THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY. THERE IS A HIGH PROBABILITY FOR A BAND OF
MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOWFALL FROM SOUTHEAST NEBRASKA THROUGH CENTRAL
IOWA AND INTO SOUTHERN WISCONSIN WHILE THE PRECIPITATION REMAINS
PRIMARILY RAIN TO THE EAST AND SOUTHEAST. STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS
WILL ACCOMPANY THE SNOW...LEADING TO CONSIDERABLE BLOWING AND
DRIFTING OF SNOW AND VERY DIFFICULT TRAVEL CONDITIONS. FOR THIS
REASON...WINTER STORM AND BLIZZARD WATCHES HAVE BEEN ISSUED FOR
MUCH OF THE REGION. STAY TUNED TO THE LATEST FORECASTS REGARDING
THE POTENTIAL IMPACTS OF THIS WINTER STORM.
