    Snowstorm Monday night/Tuesday

    Looking like this thing could be a monster for portions, if not all of the state. NAM model shows a nice swath thru the center of the state, whereas the GFS hammers the entire state with copious amounts of snow. If things hold this is how it'd look

    And there is one of the reasons I moved south!

    I don't know why everyone gets so down on snow. I don't like the cold but I think the snow is great. It adds excitement to the daily commute.

    Exactly how much in WDM? I need to decide if I want to go out in the cold tomorrow and try to fire up the snowblower that has been broken for a year now.

    According to that chart 10 inches, if I read it right.

    Should I guess that this is coming down just in time to make life exciting first for us 3rd shifters?

    While that right there shows 8-10 for Des Moines, taking in to consideration other models I would say 6 ish inches of snow is more likely however.

    Re: Snowstorm Monday night/Tuesday

    I find that if you just have fun with it the driving is fine. I think the worse thing you can do is get all nervous. I just think of it as time where I can practice my drifting skills without getting busted.

    The only thing I ever worry about is not being able to see and I usually drive pretty slow and keep my distance from other cars.

    Re: Snowstorm Monday night/Tuesday

    Okay, I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a hyper, to keep you all from freaking out too much, heres another model that, while still showing a good chunk of snow, is less aggressive. The GFS is the most aggressive. Overall my forecast for Iowa is a wide swath of around 6 inches snows, with a narrow band, probably in the eastern portion of the state of close 10 inches+.

    Actually there may be a bit of snow Sunday evening associated with a clipper, only 1 inch or so, so it shouldn't be too difficult to get off to your destination.
