Winter Weather Advisory Today....More Thursday


A winter weather advisory is in effect for northeastern Iowa until 6 AM tomorrow morning.
3" to 5" of snow is expected in the purple shaded counties on the Iowa map. By 11:00 AM Waterloo was reporting 2 inches of new snow.
In Des Moines we are expecting a light wintry mix of flurries and freezing drizzle. We are on the very south end of the current weather system...so we will not get nearly the travel headache that folks in north central and northeastern Iowa are experiencing.
Keep an eye on Thursday's forecast. This one looks to be stronger...and is setting up farther south.
Everyone south of Highway 30 can expect measurable snow of 3 to 6 inches of snow late Thursday through Friday morning. This storm will obviously impact travel.
Watch for constant updates on the storm right here and on HD 13.1 and 13.2.

Ed? What does the long range forcast look like for central Iowa?

Hey Sharon...sorry I just saw this...We are looking at trends "La Nina" that show an average winter.

It does look at bit warmer as we get into the next couple weeks...in the upper 20s and lower 30s.

There will be more snow tomorrow and Friday...up to 6 to 8 inches at the most. Another storm is setting up in the next week...right around New Year's Eve.
