    Jan. 29/30 Winter Storm

    This is shaping up to be bigger than first expected. Looks like ice and then a 70% chance of greater than 4" of snow. What does everyone think?

    As long as it is less than 8" then not a big deal

    Re: Jan. 29/30 Winter Storm

    GFS calling for 5-6 inches in Ames, but NAM is calling for under an inch. GFS calling for 6-8 in Polk County, NAM is calling for 2-4. I'm guessing there is still a lot of unknown, but it does look like it 20-30 mph winds all day tomorrow.

    Love having the windows open at work while an impending winter weather storm advisory suggests we prepare for snow and ice! Crazy!

    yeah, we're supposed to hit 58 today, thunderstorms this afternoon, flood watch (creek on my way to work was already getting over its banks), 3-6 inches of snow tomorrow, then a high of 7F on Thursday with a wind chill of -15F.
