Very wide, 30,000 ft view first impression here.

I'm still leaning toward the under, or low end. Bad placement of surface low compared to a traditional state/C. Iowa-wide heavy snow event. Lots of warm air being pumped in.

At the moment, I expect precip type issues and/or a substantial warm layer aloft that crushes the snow ratios, especially southern half of Iowa. I'll get into it a bit more seriously this afternoon, but this looks odd.

We're in Chicago. Should we return to Ames:

1. As planned on Friday afternoon/evening?
2. Try to leave earlier (Thursday night or Friday morning)?
3. Wait it out and return Saturday or Sunday?
