    Excited about a nice little snowstorm likely to affect us tomorrow here. It might be one of our last here. I expect 2-3 inches imby. This has been a pretty amazing winter but I’m ready for spring and summer

    February 23-25th Winter Storm

    Light covering on some paved surfaces downtown. Bottom edge looks to be lifting north out of town but it’s not that easy as the passage of the low has the movement of the precip shield sort of pivoting. I could see this easily filling back in for us but it’s hard to say

    Looks like DSM is being dry slotted now, if this structure could be called a dry slot. A few inches is advertised by models here, but that’s not going to happen if precipitation doesn’t fill back in as the low comes through

    Looks like I was wrong. Latest RAP and NAM are quite a bit south with the heavy snow, bringing it well into the DSM metro

    You have a much better chance than we do 35 miles south but even with that said, I’m just not seeing a southward trend with this one and we’re at the nitty gritty now

    Good chance to be mostly rain here too but I notice although the NAM just caved and headed north, the other models have inched south and we are now in the transition zone between rain and snow. So I have no real idea what will happen.

    18z NAM drives a narrow band is very heavy snow right through us but for it to verify at this point is unlikely due to long range

    We have roughly 2 1/2 inches and the rug have been pulled out from underneath us. This is bad for weathermen because this storm was hyped around here and people are going to just be mad that they couldn’t call in to work like they planned

    18z models continuing to shift north and have really begun to remove us from the heaviest swath of snow at this point. I don’t think we are at all at risk for a 0 cirrus or anything but it’s not looking as hot now here

    February 17th, 2019 Snow Event

    I already called out of work when we got that 5-6 inch storm Monday night. Now we have this.... and I’m supposed to work at 3 and I got rear wheel drive low rider. Major snow at least 8 inches new snow have fallen with some modest drifting because it’s downtown.

    Even more now and it’s still coming down!

    Not sure but the snow is very heavy just south of I80 in Des Moines and we already have a few inches. The snow is expected to continue for upwards of 24 hours from now so to answer your question I’m pretty sure stuff will fill in south for us. Can’t say for sure areas east.

    No it hasn’t at all. My sister lives near Hartford and they have barely got any snow this year

    This event suggests a 6 inch snowfall here at home. We already have 4 inches on the ground now. Definitely the snowiest winter I’ve seen here since I moved here in early 2016

    Winter Storm - February 11-13, 2019

    I think it’ll change over to snow in time for a good shot for you, the 00z RAP and HRRR hold onto this. We are a bit too far west to get the heavy snow here, looks like we will end at about 3 inches in DSM. Hang in there!
