...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN DES MOINES HAS ISSUED A WINTER
STORM WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
LOW PRESSURE MOVING NORTHEAST OUT OF THE SOUTH CENTRAL U.S. WILL SPREAD SNOW ACROSS THE AREA WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. THE SNOW WILL CONTINUE THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT...THEN GRADUALLY TAPER OFF FROM SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST DURING THE AFTERNOON THURSDAY. SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED TO BE IN THE 4 TO 8 INCH RANGE OVER MUCH OF THE SOUTHEAST TWO THIRDS OF IOWA...WITH THE HEAVIEST BAND LIKELY TO BE FROM WEST OF LAMONI...THROUGH DES MOINES...TO BETWEEN MASON CITY AND WATERLOO.
IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT BLOWING SNOW WILL BE A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH
THIS STORM. WINDS IN THE 15 TO 20 MPH RANGE WILL LIKELY CAUSE
CONSIDERABLE DRIFTING OF THE LIGHT FLUFFY SNOW HOWEVER. STRONGER
WINDS...NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS STORM...FRIDAY AFTERNOON WILL
LIKELY CAUSE MORE OF A PROBLEM WITH BLOWING SNOW.
A WINTER STORM WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT
SNOW...SLEET...OR ICE ACCUMULATIONS THAT MAY IMPACT TRAVEL.
CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS.
