    Winterstorm: 2/7-2/9

    Another storm heading our way, this one should be more impressive than the last, at least in eastern Iowa. 4-8 inch marks, locally higher east of I-35 look to be what the models are pointing at. West of I35 things are a bit more dicey just depends on where the snow sets up.

    Just when I thought it was safe to start enjoying the nice weather, you drop this on me.

    Move it to the cave quick! Then maybe the storm won't actually come!

    Not much into weather, but KCCI and WHOtv's websites make it sound like flurries resulting in 1/2 inch through tomorrow night. Pretty minimal to me.

    WHO says 1/2" for DSM metro. Hope that holds up.

    Re: Winterstorm: 2/7-2/9

    The main thing to watch for with this system will be how quickly and how strong the dry slot comes in from the southwest. If it's strong and fast, less snow. Weaker and slower... more snow.

    It'll be more than that, although if your just talking about Sunday that could be right, Sunday the precip will be pretty light before picking up some on Monday.

    Re: Winterstorm: 2/7-2/9

    Here I'll link you the bufkit sounding models estimated precip for Des Moines(these have jumped up in the latest runs).
    GFS: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/bufkit/dmx/gfs3_kdsm.dat

    Shows 12 inches actually(too high imo)

    NAM: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/bufkit/dmx/nam_kdsm.dat

    Little more than 6 inches, seems more likely to me.

    Who needs the Weather Channel or Intellicast when there is Cyclone Fanatic?

    Re: Winterstorm: 2/7-2/9

    I live in Cherokee, IA and you were pretty much spot on with ice Friday morning and a few inches of snow.

    So as I look at your links, one model looks to predict 6 inches while the other is aiming at 12 inches of snow.

    What part of Iowa is this for? None of the stations in Des Moines or Sioux City are calling for more than 2-4 inches by the end of Monday night. I think if we are looking at 6 inches we should be in a winter storm watch and 12 inches should be a winter storm warning.

    I know that I'm happy I got my snowblower fixed today if this storm is going to be as significant as your talking! Thanks for any additional clarification.

    Re: Winterstorm: 2/7-2/9

    Winter Storm Watch will be going up for Central Iowa Monday- Tuesday. Here's some quotes from the DSM Weather Discussion:

    National Weather Service Text Product Display

    FACTORS FAVORING A HIGH END ADVISORY OR LOW
    END WARNING EVENT THAT WOULD INCLUDE THE POTENTIAL FOR MORE
    THAN 8 INCHES OF SNOW IN 24 HOURS ACROSS THE NORTH FROM SUNDAY
    EVENING THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING AND ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST
    FROM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING. 48 HOUR SNOW TOTALS
    WITH THE SYSTEM MAY HIT MORE THAN 10 INCHES OVER THE NORTH CENTRAL
    AND CENTRAL COUNTIES.

    FOR THE REGION IT APPEARS THAT THE BULK OF THE SNOW WILL
    FALL ON MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT. THE WIND WILL GRADUALLY COME INTO
    PLAY DURING THE EVENT...BUT NOT REALLY IMPACT CONDITIONS HARDEST
    UNTIL LATE MONDAY EVENING AND TUESDAY AS NORTHEAST WINDS GIVE WAY TO
    NORTHWEST WINDS AND INCREASE TO 20 TO 30KTS. THIS SHOULD CAUSE
    CONSIDERABLE BLOWING AND DRIFTING TUESDAY AFTERNOON...THOUGH AT
    THIS POINT THE SNOWFALL WILL HAVE BEEN DIMINISHING DURING THE
    MORNING HOURS AND THE WIND INCREASING LATER...NOT CONCURRENTLY.

    WINTER STORM WATCH FROM SUNDAY EVENING THROUGH TUESDAY AFTERNOON
    FOR BLACK HAWK-BREMER-BUTLER-CERRO GORDO-FRANKLIN-GRUNDY-
    HAMILTON-HANCOCK-HARDIN-HUMBOLDT-KOSSUTH-WEBSTER-WINNEBAGO-WORTH-
    WRIGHT.

    WINTER STORM WATCH FROM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY AFTERNOON
    FOR APPANOOSE-BOONE-DALLAS-DAVIS-JASPER-LUCAS-MAHASKA-MARION-
    MARSHALL-MONROE-POLK-POWESHIEK-STORY-TAMA-WAPELLO-WARREN-WAYNE.
