    Official Weather Thread for Sun & Mon 12/6 & 7

    Official thread for Sunday & Monday's light snow storm. Current projects for 2 inches in DSM with 2-4 closer to highway 30.

    It started snowing lightly in Lincoln about 12:15 and has picked up a bit since. Weatherman says between 2-4 inches on our way here.

    Well we'll see if 18" summer tires and snow mix well. If you see a black Mazda in the ditch tomorrow you'll know the answer.

    Yeah, Just found some discussions from the NWS on the Tuesday/Wednesday storm. Not looking like its going to be great anywhere in iowa. Here is some of the discussions.

    Des Moines: The Eruo solution would produce the worst conditions in the state since the March 1st Blizzard of 2007 that affected much of western and northern Iowa.
    LaCrosse: …still some uncertainties…and details will not become clear for a several more days…but if the current trends continue…headlines will likely be hoisted as early as this afternoon.
    Davenport: …extreme winter storm…potentially crippling with near historic potential…high wind speeds likely would also cause significant…prolonged and widespread power outages…snow drifts of 3 to over 6 feet deep will be common by late Wednesday afternoon.

    Yikes.

    Some models indicate as much as a foot. Either way it's going to be interesting...

    Is it sad that I'm looking forward to it?

    No need to worry about that drive, they now have the fence up to keep you on the road. Well it may cause huge pile ups but atleast you wont be in the ditch.

    ha, that fence is the dumbest thing ever. i would think it would be safer for cars to have a softer landing in the shallow median than for them to bounce back onto the road and collide with other cars going 50-70mph

    The issue was shooting across into oncoming traffic.
