AMES, Iowa – Jan. 16, 2014 – Windy conditions with periodic gusts exceeding 30 mph will continue through Friday. Even small snow amounts of snowfall coupled with high winds may cause hazardous driving conditions. The Iowa Department of Transportation is working to clear roads, but blowing snow can cause roadways to quickly become re-covered after trucks pass through. Visibility can also be greatly reduced due to blowing snow.
