driving thro IA, worried about weather

My husband and I plan to drive from the Midwest to southern California over a week. The major drive planned through Iowa is:

Milwaukee - Omaha on Saturday Dec 20

I will be checking weather.com for updates. What is the best site for Iowa weather & road conditions? If the date above raises a concern - due to weather or holidays - please let me know. Thank you.

Use the local TV station websites. For central Iowa try

www.whotv.com/

www.kcci.com/index.html

Safe travels!

And for future travelers, I would add:

www.kqad.com for western IL/extreme eastern IA (Moline, IL/Davenport, IA area)

www.kgan.com for the east central (centered on Iowa City) area

www.wowt.com for western IA/Omaha

For many of the states mentioned, use the 511 service:

www.511nebraska.org

www.511ia.org

www.511wi.gov

Many other states use a 511 internet and phone system as well.

Safe travels to all!
