What Is A Snow Squall?

Snow Squall: What’s That?

A lot of us just received a notification on our phone for a Snow Squall Warning. Now, what exactly is a Snow Squall? A Snow Squall is a sudden moderately heavy snowfall with blowing snow and strong gusty surface winds. It is often referred to as a whiteout and similar to a blizzard lasting about an hour. Snow in October is not surprising for Iowa but a snow squall is something new.

Providing Home Comfort During Cold Months

While the Snow Squall tends to only be in effect for about 60 minutes, the cold weather is here and not going anywhere. The added combination of gusty winds, falling temperatures, and quick reductions in visibility has you being cooped up at home. The cold temperatures we are experiencing may have you noticing cold drafts or cold floors and constantly turning up the thermostat. This is a sign of a lack of insulation and we have the perfect solutions you are looking for.
