    If its going to snow, make it a lot of snow. None of this 'just enough to make driving a pain in the ***" stuff.

    It all seems to be varying depending on where the rain\snow line falls as the storm comes though wednesday. Sounds like snow all of thurs either way, but weds could be snow or it could be rain\ice.

    Don't know about rest of state, but KTTC (Rochester, MN) on tonight's weather segment said something to the effect that it could rival the early December storm for northern IA/southern MN. Of course, she first siad "I don't want to hype this up, but....".

    Up here, we got a foot.

    Potentially, though it is looking increasingly likely that a good chunk of s. central and SE Iowa will see a period of rain/freezing rain for at least parts of Wed, if not Thursday.

    So there will likely be dramatic differences in totals across the state compared to last time, let alone if we get into sig. ice impacts.

    Something else to consider for those who do see rain, you could probably put a rough estimate of every quarter of an inch of rain being equivalent somewhere around 3 to 4 inches of snow you're not getting. That's what will make this tricky, off by an hour on the transition to snow, and that extra .4 or .5 inches of rain cuts about 6" off the snow totals.

    It seems that a majority of the time, these storms are really over hyped, which I suppose is just to play it safe. The last one was right on the money, so Im hoping that this storm is in that mode.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    No kidding, like '07-08 when we had that first ice storm in December and then had that nice 2" sheet of refrozen melted snow and ice sheet under everything until March.

    Also keep in mind that there is a lot of snow in the ditches so it will drift on the roads quickly.
