The National Weather Service reports that a band of snow will develop tonight and move across portions of central and northeast Iowa. One to three inches of snow is possible.

Strong and gusty winds will accompany the front along with snow squalls. Wind gusts of 50 to 60 mph are possible. These conditions combined with snow tonight will lead to the potential for Blizzard conditions Sunday afternoon and evening.
