Wind Chill Warning
Areas Affected: Cerro Gordo; Emmet; Hancock; Kossuth; Palo Alto; Winnebago; Worth

NWS DesMoines (Central Iowa)
...Blowing Snow Continues into the Evening with Dangerous Wind Chills Overnight... .No additional snow is anticipated but conditions should change little into the evening with persistent strong winds producing continued blowing and drifting snow and even blizzard conditions at times north. Visibilities will be significantly reduced at times, and even to a quarter mile or less in rural, open areas. Lingering snow and icing may linger over central and parts of southern Iowa as well producing hazardous driving conditions. The winds and blowing snow should diminish somewhat overnight, but still be sufficient to drive wind chills into the 20s and 30s below zero by early Friday morning. ...BLIZZARD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT CST TONIGHT... ...WIND CHILL WARNING IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO NOON CST FRIDAY...

* WHAT...Blizzard conditions. Dangerously cold wind chills expected. Wind chills as low as 35 below zero. Winds gusting as high as 45 mph.

* WHERE...Northern Iowa.

* WHEN...For the Wind Chill Warning, from midnight tonight to noon CST Friday. For the Blizzard Warning, until midnight CST tonight.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Widespread blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility, down to a quarter mile at times in rural, open areas. The hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute. The dangerously cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 10 minutes.

A Wind Chill Warning means the combination of very cold air and the wind will create dangerously low wind chill values. Frostbite can occur quickly and even hypothermia or death if precautions are not taken. A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded, stay with your vehicle. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.
