...Snow and Blowing Snow Today Into Saturday Morning...

.A winter storm will impact all of Iowa through early Saturday.
Some areas snow amounts have trended down a bit, but with the
blowing snow potential the warning will remain in effect for the
entire forecast area. Northern Iowa is still expected to have
lighter, and more fluffy snow that will be prone to blowing. The
snow in southern Iowa will be more wet and heavy, and less prone
to blowing. Snow may have serious impacts to the Friday
afternoon/evening commute in the Des Moines metro/Ames areas and
points to the south and east of the DSM metro area where heavier
snowfall rates are expected during the commute time period.
