    Beware! Snow lurks

    Even in mid April it looks like Iowa could get clipped with some snow especially the western and northern portions. I would not be surprised if on Saturday morning there is enough that snow is sticking to the ground.

    Ugh
    It's the winter that won't die.

    At least it's supposed to be in the 60s next week!

    Really not a big deal when it will likely total an 1" or less if it sticks and will melt within 24hrs.

    60s next week.

    I'm supposed to be golfing in Ames this weekend for VEISHEA. Last year, the weather was perfect, so I suppose this makes up for it. I don't have to like it though.

    Re: Beware! Snow lurks

    We had the lowest temperature for the state of Alaska last evening at minus 16 degrees and have several feet of snow on the ground.

    And its only approximately six months until the first snow for next winter

    Des Moines I think will luck out but I wouldn't be surprised if areas like: Omaha, Fort Dodge and Mason City report a 2-3 inches from this. Its just to the northwest of those areas that will get hammered though.

    I don't understand why Veishea is so early this year..
    Isn't it usually the last weekend of April?

    I thought everyone knew that Global Warming and "Climate Change" is responsible for the "abnormal" weather we are having. It should be obvious that global warming is the cause of all this snow, cold weather, and global cooling. How silly must you be not to understand....
