Looks like there is a big mess moving in for later in the week. What say you weather guru's?
My son is flying in Friday, hopefully. Any chance this won't be too bad?
"Honey, I didn't forget the kids. I couldn't find the school due to the blizzard."

Damnit....was just cursing the recent snow and was hopeful we'd get through xmas without anymore.
The only day with a greater than 10% chance of precip in my 10 day (far NE IA) is the 19th.
Hopefully Friday night is fairly clear, or that's going to be a long drive up to MN.
Flying from KC to Arizona Friday night am I going to be ok?
Give me a white Christmas, then I am good.
Give me a brown Christmas and I will be good.
weather.com has been all over the place on this. One minute its a big one. Next minute 0% chance
1. Covering 2 different storm systems that have almost a two day break in between them is poor for discussion.
2. The first system is pretty minor, very small accumulations of rain, freezing rain and snow. Should hit Thursday day and night
3. Second storm is much more significant but the models have held it south pretty consistently. Worth watching for central Iowa but at this point SE Iowa looks like a better bet for significant accumulations.
Time to stock up on booze.
That's your response to everything.
Weather.com sucks. Accuweather has been better since I switched over a few months ago...
That pretty much covers it for me at this point. Not a lot to add.
I found weatherspark.com recently. If you like information overload then it's a great site to check out.
It's winter. It's going to snow. Breaking news.
Just picked up some Toppling Goliath XHops
If he lucks out, there will be snowdays.
I like the Wunderground. They seem pretty accurate and if I'm not mistaken this is the same info as the National Weather Service, only simplified. Did a quick copy-paste of the forecast for Ames, it seems that the only hitch will be on Thursday, the 19th - but the good news would be the high temp (above freezing, anyway, at some point).

Doesn't say anything about precipitation after that.
