'15-'16 Winter Storm #8

Posted: 09 Feb 2016 05:34 AM

For what the most recent winter storm lacked in snowfall, it made up for in very strong and persistent winds. Snowfall totals as shown by the featured map were generally around an inch or less, but this snow was blown around and created blizzard conditions especially over north central Iowa. Interstate 35 was closed for a while on Monday afternoon north of Ames to Mason City due to accidents and poor visibility. More snow is in the forecast, but the winds are not expected to be as bad!

Good = 24
Bad = 32
Abstain = 17
