Central Iowa is experiencing its first measurable snow of the winter season Tuesday. A band of light snow is moving across Central Iowa and the I-35 corridor this morning.

As of 7:00 a.m. 2″ of snow was reported at the Des Moines International Airport and 1.6″ in Polk City

Winter Weather Advisory

The snow looks to be light to briefly-moderate at times but has made roads slick for the morning commute. The snow will begin to taper off through mid-afternoon.


The heaviest band of snow looks to set up north to south directly over central Iowa and slightly to the west of I-35.

Some wrap-around snow showers may linger across Iowa into Wednesday and that could add another trace to half an inch through the end of the day Wednesday.

Weather Tools

We are watching for possibly another wave to bring snow showers across Northeast Iowa on Thursday, dropping in from Minnesota.
