Weather Alert

Next round — Winter Storm Watch Tuesday night into Wednesday

DES MOINES --- Yet another winter storm will impact much of Iowa from late
Tuesday into Wednesday as the recent active weather pattern
continues. Snow will develop over southwestern Iowa late Tuesday
afternoon and quickly move northeast during the evening and early
nighttime hours, falling heavily at times through the night before
gradually tapering off and moving out on Wednesday. Although winds
will remain fairly light, visibility will be significantly reduced
during periods of intense snowfall and road conditions will
rapidly deteriorate Tuesday night.
