    On This Date in Iowa Weather History (courtesy of the NWS):1896: Strong winds of 30 mph or higher blew from the northwest through the day causing significant blowing snow, sand, and dust storms across most of the state. An observer at Clinton noted that the resulting effect amounted to a blizzard, with travel and outdoor activities made unbearable by the very low visibility and stinging effect of blowing particles.
