    My son is flying in Friday, hopefully. Any chance this won't be too bad?

    The only day with a greater than 10% chance of precip in my 10 day (far NE IA) is the 19th.

    Hopefully Friday night is fairly clear, or that's going to be a long drive up to MN.

    weather.com has been all over the place on this. One minute its a big one. Next minute 0% chance


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    1. Covering 2 different storm systems that have almost a two day break in between them is poor for discussion.
    2. The first system is pretty minor, very small accumulations of rain, freezing rain and snow. Should hit Thursday day and night
    3. Second storm is much more significant but the models have held it south pretty consistently. Worth watching for central Iowa but at this point SE Iowa looks like a better bet for significant accumulations.

    Weather.com sucks. Accuweather has been better since I switched over a few months ago...

    That pretty much covers it for me at this point. Not a lot to add.
