There’s no travel this midday in parts of north-central Iowa. You’ve got a host of options to find out the same thing today — really snowy weather’s making driving tough to impossible. On a computer surf to “Iowa Road Conditions dot-com” and take a look. Or dial 800-288-1057 and talk with the interactive recording. It asks what region you want the data for and offers advisories and bulletins.
Another useful website is “DOT Weather View dot-com.” You can also watch for road signs that’ll direct you to tune in updated D-O-T and weather-service information on low power D-O-T radio channels.
But local radio broadcasters will probably have the most updated information on local stations if you can’t postpone your trip. By late morning the weather service had winter storm warnings for northern Iowa.
