coverage with shaina humphries. metinka: good morning, we have a lot of wind, a little bit of snow, and a lot of locations are reporting whiteout conditions. the snowflakes are flying and the winds are howling earlier this morning. they are starting to build to the south, just had a wind gust of 38 in des moines. very strong wind whipping all the snow right across the area from fort dodge across the metro to lamoni. we will end up with about an inch or less of snow, and the wind is wreaking havoc on the roads early this morning, and will be very similar throughout the afternoon. shaina: happening right now, new england is preparing for a major storm to hit later today. this is video from a snow storm that hit massachusetts and connecticut this weekend, and a lot of that snow is still on the ground. the national weather service says today's storm is expected
inches of snow could fall in massachusetts. new hampshire may get hit as well, which could make it tough for voters to get out to vote for primaries tuesday. on the west coast super bowl , city is already being torn down. after nine straight days of football fun, the signs are coming down, some streets are reopening and police presence is , going back to normal. officers there say overall it was an easy week for them and people were generally well-behaved. only 12 arrests were made over those nine days and most of those were for public intoxication. eric: a new brewery in bondurant took advantage of super bowl weekend for its grand opening. reclaimed rails brewing company is taking the old and making it new again. and that includes the old log ride from adventureland. wood from the log is being used to build this deck. the owners say that 90% of their building materials are reclaimed, reused or repurposed. so using wood from what was once a central iowa staple just makes sense. >> it went right with the theme
we've had a ton of support from the community because they got a lot of pushback to take down the log ride. it is so memorable and was such a staple of adventureland, so now you will be able to go out there have a root beer or a reclaimbe brewing beer out on the deck. it's going to be amazing. eric: the deck is expected to be finished in mid-march, just in time for summer. elizabeth: wall street will look to bounce back from a disappointing close on friday. the dow fell more than 211 points. the nasdaq lost more than 146 points. and the s and p 500 fell about 35. if chipotle is your go-to lunch spot, you'll have to try something new today. chipotle says all of its restaurants will close for four hours this afternoon for a food safety meeting. the move comes after an e-coli outbreak last fall sickened about 500 people. and if you have a broken iphone, it may not be as worthless as you think. for the first time, apple customers will be able to trade in their phones for credit
apple will pay $50 for a five s, $200 for a six, and $250 for a six plus. eric: this morning, if you are heading out, you need to use both hands on the steering wheel. metinka: it is a white knuckle commute for sure. you can see reduced visibility all across the area, and the snow has been very light. it is the wind causing all of the headache. the strongest wind is building to the south, gusting to 45 miles per hour. lighter wind off to the east. the strongest winds will be building and throughout the morning hours. this afternoon will not be quite as blustery as it is this morning, but enough to create
at or below three quarters of a mile in ames and in des moines, two miles. we have bands of light snow working through ankeny, new virginia, deck through panora and stewart, tracking in from the northwest. we will end up with light totals, but it is enough to coat the roadways, and the wind blows it back over the roadways. the worst travel conditions across i-35 northbound. those orange shaded roads, travel is not advised by the dot. do be careful as you are getting an early start, plan to take extra time to get to where you are going. the blizzard warning continues across northern iowa until 6:00 p.m. in polk county, we are under a winter weather advisory with a lot of snow and a lot of wind. this will continue throughout the afternoon, and the reason
pressure and the difference between the low and high pressure is driving in all of the strong wind from minnesota. by 6:00 p.m., the snow begins to push to the east of i-35, ending up with about an inch or less of accumulation but blowing snow concerns. heading for 23 degrees. tomorrow will be windy and we will have wind chills below zero tuesday into wednesday. by next weekend, temperatures will recover a little bit. thank you -- eric: thank you. elizabeth: shaina is keeping an eye on the roads. shaina: the dot is advising no travel north of story city either direction on i-35 because of blowing snow, reduced visibility, and slippery roads.
