...Winter Storm to Impact Parts of Central into Eastern Iowa Monday Night Through Early Wednesday... Confidence has increased that a potent winter storm will impact parts of central into eastern Iowa Monday night into Wednesday morning. While light rain may occur Monday afternoon, the rain will change to snow Monday night and continue into Tuesday as low pressure passes south of the state. The snow intensity could be moderate to perhaps heavy at times, especially on Tuesday over eastern Iowa. Snow accumulations are expected to be highest over east central Iowa where over 8 inches will be possible. Snow amounts will taper off to several inches along the I-35 corridor over central and southern Iowa. Winds from the north and later from the northwest will increase and cause blowing snow reducing the visibility later Tuesday and persisting into much of Wednesday even as the snow ends early Wednesday. Travel impacts are increasingly likely over eastern into parts of central Iowa Tuesday into Wednesday. ...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH LATE TUESDAY NIGHT...

* WHAT...Moderate to heavy snow possible. Total snow accumulations of 5 to 8 inches possible.

* WHERE...Parts of central into eastern Iowa.
