(SOUNDBITE)(ENGLISH) DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE HILLARY CLINTON, SAYING: "Don't worry about the weather tomorrow night. I have it on very good guidance that it won't start until after midnight." Presidential hopefuls are storming across Iowa, making a final plea for support before Monday night's caucuses. Soon, they'll be joined by a very different kind of storm, according to Kurt Kotenberg with the National Weather Service. (SOUNDBITE) (English) KURT KOTENBERG, METEOROLOGIST, NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, SAYING: "Some areas will get up to a foot of snow." He said that the snow isn't expected to begin until late Monday evening, so some of the caucusers may be safely back home before the storm arrives. But many voters said neither rain nor snow would keep them from their appointment with destiny. (SOUNDBITE)(ENGLISH) UNIDENTIFIED IOWAN SAYING: "I wouldn't miss it." (SOUNDBITE)(ENGLISH) UNIDENTIFIED IOWAN SAYING: "It's my first year, so I'm definitely going." (SOUNDBITE)(ENGLISH) UNIDENTIFIED IOWAN SAYING: "It's not forecast to start until later, so I'm going."
