Snow remains in the forecast Tuesday and Wednesday, including a
winter storm watch out across northern Iowa. While some of the details
on final snowfall amounts and locations will likely change over the

see 6 or more inches of snow, with an inch or less south of snow
expected along and south of Interstate 80. After the system moves
