Saturday Storm Update

A blizzard watch and warning have been posted for northern Iowa tomorrow through early Sunday.
We are going to miss the big sucker punch of this storm.
Rain will move in this evening and will continue overnight into the late morning tomorrow. We will use up most of the moisture before the very cold weather gets here Saturday evening.
Heavy snow is expected in northern Iowa. Wind gust will blast in over 40 mph. The roads will become very slick and visibilities will drop in northern Iowa tomorrow.
We will all see the very cold temperatures by Sunday.
Wind chills will drop to the -15 to -25 degree range.
Travel to the south this weekend is looking OK. North of Highway 30 the travel conditions will be terrible.

Was watching your news report at 5 and noticed that you used 12 am as noon. When I was in school we learned that noon was 12 pm. I have since learned that 12 noon and 12 midnight are the correct terms since am and pm start at 12:001. Hope to see a change in the terms during forecasts to stop the confusion for me and others. Thanks
