    Christmas Eve road conditions

    Anyone been out and about this morning? Seems like central Iowa got a bit lucky with this one, as the forecast this morning seems to indicate that the storm held off longer than they thought, and is moving out faster than they thought as well. Perhaps that's just wishful thinking though.

    Total weatherman fail. Last night they said 6.7 inches and snow until 6pm. We barely have 2 and it's about done.

    Yeah, we have maybe an inch in Indianola, though it is coming down heavy right at the moment.

    Re: Christmas Eve road conditions

    Well, I got 6 inches of snow so far, and NWS just upgraded winter weather advisory to winter storm warning for heavy snow in parts of NC and NE Iowa.

    Re: Christmas Eve road conditions

    I got out of my driveway just before the city plows came down my street. Now I just need to stay at the coffee shop until the renters get the driveway cleared

    Sadly it's not just Warren county. I drove from Stuart to WDM around 730 and the interstate was basically one lane. The DOT is failing massively on this "storm". Jordan Creek still doesn't look like a plow has been down it at all.

    I thought the forecast was pretty clear it would be about 6 inches by around 1 or so today...not overnight.

    It does look like Des Moines will come in a bit shy of the 4-5 I called for Wed & Thu, though it is not over yet...2.5" downtown, waiting for next band in 30-45 min

    On the other hand it would appear the 4~6" called for north of highway 30, with iso 7+ NE, is coming in nicely.

    Snow Reports

    Correct and it looks to be done.

    Warren County finally figured out that it snowed!

    Hardly looks done according to the radar.
