    Looks like we could be in for the first real big snow of the year on Friday. What say you weather nerds?!

    Re: Weather thread 1-20-12

    Not worried, highs of 45, 50, and 38 predicted for Sat-Mon so it should melt away pretty quickly. This stuff today might melt down a little before then too with some near freezing temps on Weds and Friday.

    Re: Weather thread 1-20-12

    Those highs for this weekend have changed quite a bit since last night. And it seems with my limited weather knowledge that some part of Iowa is going to be in for some good snow. Looks right now that the best chance will be north of Highway 20. But I am sure that will change between now and then.

    They dropped those predictions today in most places. High of 37 on Monday, but that's about as high as its predicted to get. They have also seemed to drop some of their predictions for the snow this Friday. Next week on Tuesday is looking big, but this far out, it typically never pans out.

    Re: Weather thread 1-20-12

    Why would someone start a weather thread when only a couple inches are expected?

    I'm planning on starting a weather thread tomorrow dealing with temperatures. When it's 6 degrees up there, I'm going to be cruising around with my windows down in 66 degree weather.

    NO REST: Next Winter Storm Arrives Friday

    This is an especially difficult round of snow to forecast for as there is not a lot of precipitation involved. This snow will come down to the ever popular ratio. With a very cold and dry airmass over Iowa, snow ratios could be closer to the 20:1 range. That means an inch of precipitation would fall as 20 inches of snow.

    Now don’t panic, we’re not going to see 20 inches. But that does mean a light amount of precip can turn into3”-6” inches of snow if not more very easily. Because this is such a light precipitation event, and one that falls over a longer period of time than the snow we saw Tuesday Morning, it is difficult to really nail down how much snow we could see. So today we need to just stick to generalities and prepare for the worst.

    Snow should overspread the state during the day on Friday. This snow could last anywhere from 15-20 hours in length. When all is said and done, we cold see high-end advisory to low-end warning criteria snowfall. This would put some areas above the 6” mark for total accumulations. At this time, the greatest threat for significant snowfall lies in the northern half of Iowa. But most areas if not all of the state will see some snow fall during the day on Friday.
