    Winter Storm Warning, heavy snow expected with a
    period of mixed precipitation along and south of a line from
    Sterling, Illinois to Fairfield, Iowa. Total snow accumulations
    of 7 to 14 inches, highest north of Highway 30, and ice
    accumulations of a light glaze. Northeast winds gusting as high
    as 40 mph. For the Blizzard Warning, blizzard conditions
    expected. Northwest winds gusting as high as 50 mph. For the
    Wind Chill Watch, dangerously cold wind chills possible. Wind
    chills as low as 40 below zero.

    * WHERE...Portions of northwest and west central Illinois and
    east central, northeast and southeast Iowa.

    * WHEN...For the Winter Storm Warning, from 9 PM this evening to
    5 PM CST Friday. For the Blizzard Warning, from 5 PM Friday to
    noon CST Saturday. For the Wind Chill Watch, from Saturday
    evening through Tuesday morning.

    * IMPACTS...Travel will be very difficult to impossible with
    significant blowing and drifting snow leading to occasional
    whiteout conditions. The hazardous conditions will impact the
    morning and evening commutes. Gusty winds could bring down tree
    branches. For later this weekend into early next week,
    dangerously cold wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed
    skin in as little as 10 minutes.

    * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Moderate to heavy snow will overspread the
    area this evening from south to north. Some areas, south of
    Interstate 80 may see freezing rain and rain mixed at times
    before quickly changing back to snow. Late Friday afternoon into
    the evening, much colder air moves in along with very strong
    northwest winds which will lead to Blizzard conditions for
    parts of the area and potentially a flash freeze on roadways.
