Snow is starting to reduce visibilities from Ames to Marshalltown to Grinnell. There is a thin line of heavy snow falling in that area...but there is also dry air stopping the storm from developing over the Metro.
We are still expecting snow after midnight. Around 2 am we will see the snow move into the metro and start to stick.
4" of new snow is still expected...but with the pockets of dry air...it has me wondering if this storm has the ability to drop up to 6 inches of snow.
A winter weather advisory is still in effect...travel will be slow overnight...but not impossible. Take extra time and use your patience if you have to drive. Air travel will not be held up in Des Moines.
Just finishing up the 9 news...ready to get the new totals and storm timing in line for the 10 PM on Channel 13... stay tuned.
