Statewide Iowa — We did get some snow yesterday afternoon and overnight, but the amounts were generally less than expected.

Meteorologist Craig Cogil at the National Weather Service, says wide sections of the state did get heavy snow, but not the foot of snow that was expected in some areas.

Sheldon recorded five and a half inches of snow. Rock Rapids had six inches. Eight inches of snow was reported in George. Cogil says dozens of school districts are either on delays or have cancelled classes for the day and anyone who’s on the road will need to use great caution.

Cogil says the precipitation should be ending very soon.

Tow bans are in effect through the morning in several Iowa counties. For the latest road report go to 511ia.org. Patchy blowing snow is forecast for today for the Sheldon area, but for the next week, the only mention of precip at this point is just some flurries Sunday night and Monday.
