(Atlantic) Get that snow blower fueled up the National Weather Service in Des Moines says a powerful winter storm is expected to sweep across southwest Iowa Wednesday night.
“We are definitely going to have an impact from a powerful winter storm system and at this point it is a certainty that we will be getting some measure of precipitation here,” stated Jim Lee with the National Weather Service in Des Moines. “The first swath of snow will bring 6-to-8inches of snow by early Thursday morning, with a storm total of somewhere around that 6-12 inch range.”
Lee says northwest Iowa could receive 10-12 inches of snow and even more. Southeast Iowa could receive 5-6 inches of snow.
