Snow Storm to Affect Iowa, Nebraska, Three Finalists for State Sup. Court Seat Sent to Governor

A significant winter snowstorm is expected to affect this evening’s commute across much of Iowa. National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Curtis says the system will work its way from the southwest to the northeast.

Through areas like Atlantic, Des Moines, the southern Ames metro then off towards Marshalltown and Waterloo. This evening those areas could end up seeing about two to five or three to six inches in some cases.”

Curtis says in combination with the falling snow, northerly winds gusting around 35 mph will severely reduce visibilities while traveling.  

Schools in Nebraska and Iowa canceled after-school activities and shut down early as residents in both states brace for the latest winter storm. 

The names of three finalists for Iowa's vacant Supreme Court seat have been forwarded to Gov. Kim Reynolds, who will appoint one of them. The  Judicial Nominating Commission on Thursday selected as finalists Joel Barrows, a district court judge out of Bettendorf; Matt McDermott, a Des Moines attorney; and Dana Oxley, a Cedar Rapids attorney. The three were selected from a dozen applicants. Reynolds will have 30 days to make the appointment to fill the vacancy left by the sudden death in November of Chief Justice Mark Cady.
