With a pair of cold fronts accompanied by snow expected to hit Iowa today and tomorrow, it’s oddly coincidental that today (November 8) is Winter Weather Awareness Day.

Winter weather brings its own batch of problems whether it’s exposure to cold, compromised driving conditions or other issues. According to the National Weather Service, hundreds are injured or killed each year as a result of wintry conditions.

The latest forecast calls for Ottumwa to receive an inch or two of snow tonight with another half inch of snow to fall on Friday.
