    Wednesday Weather

    Have any of you heard what the weather is supposed to be like today in Iowa. I heard a lot of places can expect some freezing rain. Just curious.

    You go to CF to get the weather. I'm trying to figure out the logic.

    We just had thunder, lightning, and now freezing rain and sleet here in the Des Moines area.

    "I spose I'll head to CF and ask"...instead of, you know, going to KCCI, KIMT, Weather Underground, etc.

    Travel conditions are one thing. A meteorologist can't tell you that for the most part. However, asking for the weather? They can definitely tell you that as its happening.

    80/35 in DSM is just wet. Although, cars are driving like there is 2" of ice on the roads. I drove my normal speed (70), and was fine. It helps that the ground has been 'warm' for the most part up until this week, so it will take a little longer to freeze. Bridges will be the problem areas, being that they freeze rather quickly.

    Side roads have a bit of buildup from the freezing rain. I picked my son up from preschool about 11:15 and could tell a big difference from Forest Ave to University Ave. I did slide just a bit once on the drive.

    A) I think sometimes people on CF are more quick with weather updates than the local news stations, and sometimes provide much better insight.

    B) A lot of the meteorologist's from the local news stations, as well as else where around the Country, went to ISU and post here frequently.

    C) Shut up.
