KWWL -
The Iowa Caucuses will still be happening Monday, despite snowy weather.
The Republican Party of Iowa and the Iowa Democratic Party issued a joint statement which reads:
"The Iowa Caucuses will continue as planned this evening.  We recognize the hardship that today's weather could cause for some caucus-goers to get to their caucus site this evening. However, after reviewing Iowa Code and our respective constitutions, there is no provision for us to postpone the caucuses due to weather.   
"We urge everyone to use caution and common-sense when heading out this evening. Take it slow, allow plenty of time, and take care while on the roads. If any caucus-goers have questions or concerns, they should check the Republican Party of Iowa website or call 515-282-8105 or the Iowa Democratic Party website or call 515-244-7292."
