    Winter Storm Watch for DSM, 4-8 inches of snow. Is it spring yet?

    Re: Here We Go Again!

    Who did you hear that from?

    I've heard snow, but nothing approaching those amounts.

    Of course weathermen could look outside half the time and still get the "Current conditions" wrong.

    Re: Here We Go Again!

    ya its true...and i am very mad.. i hate this crap


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Here We Go Again!

    Looks like the worst of it will be northern Iowa. Doesn't really say how much the DSM area will get. Just in time for another home basketball game too. #@*&$&

    From TheIowaChannel.com...

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- A winter storm watch is in effect from Wednesday morning to Friday morning.

    The National Weather Service said that snow will likely develop Wednesday morning and mix with or change to freezing rain and sleet south of Highway 3 by the afternoon.

    NWS said there is the potential for ice accumulations of one quarter to one-third of an inch near and south of Highway 3 through Wednesday evening.Snowfall through Wednesday evening is expected to be between 1 and 4 inches, and the greatest amounts will be close to the Minnesota border, according to the National Weather Service.

    The agency said there will be a brief break in the precipitation Wednesday night before snow, which will be heavy at times, and increasing wind will develop on Thursday morning.Northern Iowa could be faced with near-blizzard conditions.On Thursday afternoon and evening, 15 to 25 mph winds will be coming from the west and northwest winds and gusts over 35 mph are possible, according to the NWS.

    The NWS said 6 to 12 inches of snow is possible on Friday morning.

    The NWS expects snowfall to be lighter on Friday, but strong west to northwest winds will cause considerable blowing and drifting snow.

    A winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet, or ice accumulations that may affect travel. With the potential hazards of heavy ice and snow accumulations, compounded by increasing winds, additional power outages as the result of downed trees and power lines is a distinct possibility.

    Re: Here We Go Again!

    I haven't been back up in Ames ever since I moved in 2005. I was thinking about spending my spring break in mid March to drive on up there, but I'm not sure it's sounding like a good idea now.... you guys are due for a break.

    Re: Here We Go Again!

    It's not like we've had that nasty of a winter. This recent storm was our worst and I remember far worse storms in my history.

    We had a solid week or two of very cold weather. We had 2 or 3 storms so far that produced a decent amount of snow. In reality, that's not bad at all for winter in Iowa.

    Re: Here We Go Again!

    This coming storm could be as bad or worse in some areas as the last one this past weekend. Damage from the ice/snow will only be amplified as a new coat of heavy ice and snow (.25-.33" ice, 6-12" snow) falls on top of what we already have....

    Sounds like fun!

    Re: Here We Go Again!

    That would explain why they are taking snow away in trucks and cutting low branches around campus
