Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1105 AM CST Fri Feb 9 2018

The latest round of snowfall for the state has all but wrapped up as
of late morning. A few light snow showers are still tracking across
parts of southern Iowa, but most of the area has cleared out. Reports
from overnight show the brunt of the last snowfall over the Highway 20
corridor in north central Iowa where up to 11 inches of snow was
reported in the Fort Dodge area. Amounts quickly dissipated to the
south with only an inch seen in Ames and Des Moines. Other amounts of
3 to 4 inches were measured as far north as the Minnesota border.
Although the snow is winding down, cold conditions continue with
widespread below zero wind chills across the state.

Another band of snow will cross the area tonight, this time impacting
areas mainly along and south of Interstate 80. Anywhere from 1 to 4
inches of snowfall is possible through Saturday morning, which create
for hazardous travel conditions in some spots. An additional 1 to 2
inches is possible in far south central and southeast Iowa on Saturday
night into Sunday morning, but then forecast dries out through the
first half of next week. No significant warm ups are anticipated
through the next 7 days, so much of the new snow is likely to stick 
around for a little while.
