Anticipated Winter Wallop Causes Schools To Close Early
For a brief moment, you thought these winter weather events would be done for the rest of the season, right?
Another winter weather event is expected to sweep through Northeastern Iowa this Thursday. According to our weather partners at KCRG, the wintry mix is still expected to move through much of Eastern Iowa today.
They are predicting that we might see anywhere between 3 to 7 inches of snowfall over the course of the day. Parts of our listenership might be seeing 3, 4, or 5 inches hit them versus those higher amounts. It is supposed to move in by mid-morning and slowly start to spread.
Our weather partners anticipate that it will continue on into tonight and wrap up sometime early tomorrow morning. Due to the timing of the storm, your drive into work or school will be fine, but the drive home will be a challenge.
Thus, multiple schools in Northeastern Iowa have already announced that they would be dismissing students a bit early today.
Gladbrook-Reinbeck: School will close at noon today
