Weather Summary for Iowa

531 PM CST Fri Feb 24 2017
A winter storm continued to impact much of the Upper Midwest today.
Blizzard conditions were seen over parts of northwest and north
central Iowa where heavy snowfall occurred, reported in excess of a
foot at some locations. Further to the south and east snowfall amounts
were less, but still enough to create adverse travel conditions as
the main band of snowfall tracked eastward through the day.
The snow will come to an end late this evening and tonight, with much
quieter conditions expected for Saturday. Temperatures will still be
cool and will only top out in the mid 20s to mid 30s during the
afternoon. A warm up begins early next week as some spots will return
to the 40s and 50s, although the dense snowpack in the northern tier
of the state will hold highs back in the 30s. Light rain and snow
will be possible Tuesday through Thursday, however amounts should be
light and not create much of an impact to local travel.
