The National Weather Service in Des Moines has cancelled the blizzard warning issued Sunday for the Perry area, but a winter weather advisory for snow and blowing snow will remain in effect until 3 p.m. Monday.

The blizzard warning remains in effect along Iowa Highway 30 and northward. The Iowa State Patrol has reported white-out conditions continually from midnight to 5 a.m. Monday in Boone and Story counties. Iowa Highway 17 is impassible near Iowa Highway 30, and U.S. Highway 169 is also treacherous near Iowa Highway 30, according to Iowa State Patrol reports.

The blizzard warning for Dallas, Guthrie and Audubon counties was cancelled at 3:36 a.m. Monday.

The winter weather advisory said travel will continue to be extremely dangerous as strong, gusty winds with periods of snow showers and blowing snow significantly reduce visibility. Drifting snow will also continue.

The winter weather advisory will continue until 3 p.m. Monday in Dallas, Guthrie and Audubon counties, including the cities of Perry, Audubon, Exira, Guthrie Center, Panora, Bayard, Casey, Adel and Waukee.
