  1. April 18th-19th Winter Storm

    After a 4 hour delay, and really getting dry slotted this morning, we have finally switched over to light to moderate snow here in DVN...Big fluffy flakes, lowering visibility in the higher DBZ....Liking the look of radar back towards Des Moines and the I-80 corridor for a decent period of snow this evening that may give us that 1" after all to close things down for the season.

    Man....I love this whole "Midwest Spring" weather! Ha From DVN:

    Hi-Res data from overnight & this morning, def. trying to make things interesting again down to the I-80 corridor by Wednesday afternoon.
  4. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    Well..a kinda surprise snowy mess here in DVN early this morning. Probably picked up near an 1" of powdery snow overnight, which has frozen into ice, leading to numerous accidents and road closures around town. Plow crews finally called into action around 7am this morning, but obviously the morning commute damage has been done. A really heavy band moved through between 4am-5am producing near white-out conditions and half-dollar sized flakes. All of a sudden, Wednesday is looking mighty interesting around here. Especially on the NAM. Spring-Who?

    After a long wait watching the edge of that band basically stall just to our west, it's finally moving in, and right on cue, we have switched from drizzle to light snow. Coming down pretty good and steady too. Decent size flakes. Temps are hovering above freezing at the start.

    Pretty remarkable that the all 10 days in April averaged below normal temps this year in DVN, even more remarkable that they all average 10-20+ degrees below normal.

    Welcome to Mid-April! How are the flowers looking!? Uhmm....
  10. April 8th-9th "winter" storm?

    Emded up with about 2.6" here with 3-5" amounts just to my west and south! Not bad for April 9th! Speaking of fluff factor, DVN saying we had near 20:1 ratios overnight in spots! Uhm, where was this in December and January when we were beggin for 15:1 ratios haha
  11. April 8th-9th "winter" storm?

    About a 1/2 inch so far at DVN & MLI That heavy band from Muscatine to Burlington a little earlier dropped about 2 inches already there.
  12. April 8th-9th "winter" storm?

    Nice, already a nice dusting on everything but roadways within the past 15 minutes of the snow picking up a bit here. Heavy rates just to the west SLOWLY inching east.
  13. April 8th-9th "winter" storm?

    Yea, it's been snowing lightly, w/ tiny flakes while still saturating here for about the past 45 minutes. Just now starting to pick up in both size and intensity.
