Des Moines, Iowa – There’s still more than a month of fall left, but it’s going to start looking and feeling a lot more like winter later today as a cold front glides over Iowa. Meteorologist Craig Cogil at the National Weather Service bureau in Johnston, says the rain will change to snow late this afternoon and into this evening.
Many motorists haven’t gotten used to needing their winter driving skills yet and they’ll have to be fast learners.
Next week is one of the busiest travel weeks of the year and Cogil says it appears the weather should cooperate.
Winter arrives, at least on the calendar, December 21st. Keep up to date on the forecast at weather.gov.
