Winter Weather Advisory for Thursday - blowing snow

Temperatures will drop to 2° and only warm to 8° on Friday.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 6:00 p.m. Thursday as the strong northwest wind is causing blowing snow to create icy roads across central Iowa. A cold front will pass through northeast IL and northwest IN on Thursday afternoon, with the following frigid air dropping wind chills to minus 20 to minus 30 degrees and colder later Thursday night and Friday morning. Northwest winds gusting well over 30 miles per hour along with frigid temperatures falling below zero will set the stage for unsafe wind chills here. Frostbite and hypothermia can occur if precautions are not taken. Make sure to wear a hat and gloves.

There will be travel concerns and likely school cancellations come Monday. At times we might see some flurries passing by but no measurable snow is expected.

Friday will be a cloudy, breezy day. "A quick coating to near an inch of snow is possible", according to a Special Weather Statement issued by the NWS.
