    Snow Storm heading this way!

    ...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
    THURSDAY AFTERNOON...

    THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN DES MOINES HAS ISSUED A WINTER
    STORM WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
    THURSDAY AFTERNOON.

    LOW PRESSURE MOVING NORTHEAST OUT OF THE SOUTH CENTRAL U.S. WILL
    SPREAD SNOW ACROSS THE AREA WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. THE SNOW WILL
    CONTINUE THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT...THEN GRADUALLY TAPER OFF FROM
    SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST DURING THE AFTERNOON THURSDAY. SNOWFALL IS
    EXPECTED TO BE IN THE 4 TO 8 INCH RANGE OVER MUCH OF THE SOUTHEAST
    TWO THIRDS OF IOWA...WITH THE HEAVIEST BAND LIKELY TO BE FROM WEST
    OF LAMONI...THROUGH DES MOINES...TO BETWEEN MASON CITY AND WATERLOO.

    IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT BLOWING SNOW WILL BE A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH
    THIS STORM. WINDS IN THE 15 TO 20 MPH RANGE WILL LIKELY CAUSE
    CONSIDERABLE DRIFTING OF THE LIGHT FLUFFY SNOW HOWEVER. STRONGER
    WINDS...NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS STORM...FRIDAY AFTERNOON WILL
    LIKELY CAUSE MORE OF A PROBLEM WITH BLOWING SNOW.

    A WINTER STORM WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT
    SNOW...SLEET...OR ICE ACCUMULATIONS THAT MAY IMPACT TRAVEL.
    CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS.

    Snow system is expected to park for 12 hours over the Coralville area. Darn.

    Re: Snow Storm heading this way!

    The bet could be who will get more snow - Iowa State, Iowa, UNI or Drake.

    Just a mere figment of some forecaster's dream - the weather has been very stable for two weeks. They need some action.
