Iowa City could receive up to 14 inches of snow in the next two days, according to officials with the National Weather Service in Davenport.

A blizzard warning is in effect from 3 p.m. today until noon Wednesday.

Meteorologist Chris Legro said travel is not advised, because Iowa City could face northeasterly winds of up to 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 45 mph.

Tom Rocklin, the UI vice president for Student Services, reminded the university community in an e-mail that the UI functions whenever possible in the event of severe weather, but people should use their best judgment when determining if it is safe to travel to campus.
