(Nearly) Live Pictures from Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin

First up, Rochester, MN.  Rochester is located within the blizzard warning issued for southeastern MN and extreme northern IA.  This camera is located at the intersection of US-52 and 55th street on the North side of Rochester.  In addition to blizzard conditions, Rochester if forecast to receive 8-12 inches of snow.

Next, we travel east to La Crosse, WI near the banks of the Mississippi River (or whatever is left of it at its northern end).  La Crosse is forecast to receive 8-12 inches of snow by Wednesday evening.  While there isn’t a blizzard warning for the area, they are expecting strong winds and occasional whiteout conditions.

From there, we turn around and travel westward (and a little south) to the town of Algona, IA.  Algona is small town in north central Iowa.  They’re of interest for two reasons: 1) they have a webcam and 2) they’re under a blizzard warning.  Algona is forecast to receive 10-14 inches of snow, but with all the wind, who knows if they’ll get an accurate measurement?

There are 30+ web cams between Algona and Des Moines, so please feel free to visit WeatherBonk and scan the other images around the state.

Our last stop on this trek around the Midwest brings us to Iowa City, IA and the home of the Hawkeyes.  Fresh off their berth in the Orange Bowl, the University of Iowa football team can prepare by practicing in a blizzard.  Nothing prepares one for a game in Miami like heavy snow and biting winds.  Well, maybe they have an indoor facility.  Six to 12 inches of the white stuff is forecasted for Iowa City and a blizzard watch is still in effect.
