The forecast of a winter storm rolling into most of Iowa early Tuesday has forced the ISU Agriculture and Life Sciences Career Day to postpone until Thursday, Feb. 4. 

The job fair Thursday will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union and is open to the public, according to a College of Agriculture and Life Sciences release. 

The original fair was originally scheduled for Wednesday. About 110 organizations planned on attending. 

“Because of the expected storm, I realize we may lose some participants, but I prefer to err on the side of caution for people traveling to the event,” Mike Gaul, director of Career Services for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, said in the release. 

Here is a link to the organizations that have committed to Thursday’s event.

Snow is expected move into Iowa late tonight and move northward past midnight into Tuesday morning. The National Weather Service predicts anywhere from 6 to 10 inches of snow, with winds from 25 to 35 mph and gusts up to 40 mph.

Hazardous travel conditions are expected with the possibility of whiteout conditions in some areas.
