DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Flights are back in the air at Des Moines International Airport after a band of heavy snow moved through the area Tuesday morning.

Airport operations supervisor William Klees says the heavy snow ended a little after 10 a.m. at the airport and that flights “are back on as scheduled.”

Klees said a number of flights were canceled ahead of Tuesday’s snow.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning until early Wednesday for a stretch of Iowa starting in the southwest corner, through central Iowa and into much of the northeast region of the state. Most of the northwestern and north-central section remains in a blizzard warning, with heavy and blowing snow until early Wednesday.

The storm came on the heels of Iowa’s Monday night presidential caucuses.
