Winter Storm Sweeps Central USA Weather, Roads, and Closures
Snow storms are covering the the central United States, including Iowa and Oklahoma, which were being hit the hardest. The snow fall has already caused major delays and closures and is expected to get worse: Snowfall is supposed to increase to 1 to 2 inches per hours which should increase the base an additional 3 to 6 inches by sunset. Total accumulation is expected to reach 10 to 14 inches in Iowa and Oklahoma.
Overnight tonight, things will become worse, with heavy snow likely as well as very strong wind. Blizzard conditions will be occurring tonight. Travel should be kept to a minimum tonight and Wednesday morning, and if you do decide you have to travel, you need to carry a survival kit with you. If you go off the road tonight, or get stuck somewhere, help will be slow to arrive, if at all - it's extremely important to carry this kit.
