    February 23-25th Winter Storm

    Yeah so I'm going to go ahead and say that Ames is not going to see 17.3" of snow in 6 hours (and it's still snowing). But I can dream, right? Most of the models point to someone between Sioux Falls and Davenport having a lot of fun in a blizzard, but it's likely to be an extremely narrow corridor.

    The NAM is a fun model.

    We've been in light snow for a while now this morning, and have managed to make it to 4".

    Pitiful storm here. Roughly 3”. Like always, a last second unfavorable shift. Like always, hi res guidance was abysmal.

    Have about an inch with the initial band that slid north across Iowa earlier. Radar has filled in pretty well in the last hour. Nothing too heavy but still accumulating right now.

    Just gonna guess 6” and call it a day. Models aren’t handling the low level dry air well from run to run.

    Let's Talk Winter!!

    How's this one? Obviously very marginal thermals below 850, but I'd favor a zone of 3-6" wherever they can hold on to snow long enough. The NAM is obviously overdone, but something like the 3km NAM doesn't seem too far fetched.

    Warnings for 5-9”. Trends overnight we’re pretty good. Going to be some really intense snow sometime during the morning.

    Watch for 5-8”. Thinking closer to 6” unless we manage good ratios. Not looking forward to the commute Wednesday.

    February 17th, 2019 Snow Event

    We picked up about an inch or so last night with some remnant moisture. Total in Ames close to 9.5", DSM 9.5". DMX office was the overall winner in the area with 10.5".

    No matter where it tracks, it seems like this is going to be a big one somewhere. The GFS seems to be on the west end of guidance, and the Canadian on the east. Should be an interesting one to track, but I wouldn't get invested until we're much closer.

    Remarkable turnaround in the last month or so:

    Looks like the storm total here is somewhere between 8-8.5". More than doubles the previous season-high.

    Looks like another good event for Iowa. Kinda similar today with a heavy burst for a few hours. Havent looked too far in depth but the NAM soundings were even better than today with a deeper DGZ and better lift throughout. DMX already going with 4-6”

    Woke up to very large dendrites falling. Someone at ISU measured 6” about an hour ago. Think we’ll probably pick up at least another inch based off radar.
