    Re: Hello winter!!!

    The Sunday storm is just your typical thing moisture starved, weak system but snowfall rates could be higher than typical leading to light fluffy. The snowstorm on Tuesday into Wednesday is the one that bears the most close observation. The models have been remarkably consistent about that storm and it wouldn't shock me to see 8-10 inches in a band somewhere across Iowa. Thing to be concerned about is wind on the backside creating very bad visibilities and drifting snow(maybe blizzard, depends how everything ends coming together)

    Likely between I-80 and the MO border for the heaviest amount, that's where the bulls-eye has been consistently for the last 3 days or so. And you're right, the winds look nasty behind that one, something that will mostly be missing from tomorrow's event.

    WOOHOO!


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    As long as the roads are clear, and it isn't ball-busting cold, I'm alright with it.
