The Hawkeye State is bracing for more frigid, snowy weather. Of Iowa’s 99 counties, 96 counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory — with the only exceptions being in the state’s far northwest corner.
Roger Vahollek, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, says the storm front is arriving in the state now. Warmer air will hit the cold air and should bring western Iowa snow between 6 and 8 A.M., with snow hitting central Iowa around 9 A.M. Vahollek says the measurement of snow will vary across Iowa today with this latest storm, with a range of three to five inches in central Iowa.
He says the north-central counties could see three to four inches, while south of Highway 30 could be four to five inches. Vahollek says another storm is heading toward Iowa. The next storm system is stronger than the current system and may produce snow and freezing rain over Iowa, arriving late Thursday and into midday Friday.
