Some northeast Iowa school districts are dismissing students early today and others cancelled classes, due to winter weather.

A wind advisory is posted for a large portion of the state through tonight. Wind gusts of 35 miles per hour or greater are expected to create white-out conditions and hamper travel, especially in rural parts of Iowa. Temperatures are also expected to turn bitterly cold.
