Winter Storm Moves Through Iowa

Feb 2, 2016

There’s either a blizzard, winter, or ice storm warning for most of Iowa making travel extremely hazardous. Parts of the state will get 6 to 12 twelve inches of snow.

"We have a big area of low pressure that moving threw the plains and the Midwest," says meteorologist Kelsey Engle at the National Weather Service’s Des Moines Office. "With temperatures cold enough, as well as well enough moisture, that is producing snow across Iowa."

Engle says snow may continue falling until Wednesday morning. Expect below-freezing temperatures for the rest of the week.
