As today's storm moves into Iowa, it apparently is saving some of its greatest fury for the Interstate 80 corridor, with near blizzard to blizzard conditions forecast.
Snow blowing sideways at 30 mph to 40 mph is forecast this morning. The snowstorm is expected to last about three or four hours once it starts, which is forecast to be around 9 a.m. or 10 a.m.
In Pottawattamie, Harrison, Monona and Shelby Counties, the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., one step shy of a blizzard.
East of those Iowa counties, however, a blizzard warning is in effect from 9 a.m. today through 6 a.m. Friday.
