Mother Nature has delivered as promised! Snow will fall heavily throughout the day across much of the state. There will be a mixture of sleet and freezing rain moving north from the Iowa state line this afternoon.
If you are following the snowfall intensity on radar, you might notice some brighter returns. The yellow color on the National Weather Service Radar indicates the area of ice pellets or freezing precipitation. Just north of that band is where the heaviest snow is likely falling.
Also, when viewing the surface reports, visibilities of a half mile or less suggest snow is accumulating at the rate of an inch an hour.
