Though snowfall amounts are expected to be very low, strong winds will greatly amplify forecast light snow across northern Iowa tonight. Forecast snowfall amounts should be under 1 inch tonight across northern Iowa. However, wind speeds will be from the northwest at 20 to 30 mph, with gusts possibly exceeding 45 mph at times. Combining the snow with these strong winds could lead to periods of visibility less than 1 mile… with visibility potentially dropping to less than 1/4 of a mile if the snow is locally intense enough. Timing… This snow should arrive around midnight Tuesday morning and last until around sunrise Tuesday morning. Flurries will likely linger into the afternoon hours, however the intensity should be light enough to not reduce visibility below the 1 to 3 mile range. Plan on the potential need for extra travel time and reduced travel speeds across northern Iowa Tuesday morning. Stay safe!
