A Winter Storm Warning goes into effect this evening until tomorrow night. The National Weather Service says 7-11" of snow is expected. Winds will pick up tomorrow and gust to 35mph causing considerable drifting. Visibilities we cut down to 1/2 mile or less at times on Sunday.
Last week, officials at The Iowa Environmental Mesonet inside the Iowa State's Science & Technology department made a prediction: We may not see many more snow events this season, but the ones that do come could be more intense. Looks like one of those big ones should make a substantial impact this weekend.
