...BLIZZARD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT CST
TONIGHT...

* SHORT TERM TRENDS...Light to moderate snow will continue early
this evening. The snow is expected to taper off from west to
east across central Iowa through mid to late evening. Strong
north winds are expected into the evening, although they will
also subside with time. Blizzard conditions are expected in
mainly rural areas for the next few hours with some improvement
by mid to late evening.

* ADDITIONAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS...1 inch or less.

* WINDS/VISIBILITY...Northerly winds at 15 to 25 mph with gusts
up to 35 mph. Visibility will be reduced below three quarters
of mile for long periods with occasional white-out conditions,
mainly in rural areas.

* IMPACTS...Travel will remain dangerous as blowing snow reduces
visibility. Many tow bans remain in effect across northern
Iowa.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds
and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout
conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If
you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get
stranded, stay with your vehicle.
