Weekend Storm Pushing South

The big storm is still moving in our direction..but now is taking a turn farther south. This will mean less rain and snow for central Iowa.
There is a winter storm watch for the southwest corner of Iowa. It does not include Des Moines.
Rain will start tomorrow afternoon. The rain will change to snow by early Saturday morning.
More dry air is going to get pulled into this storm and the track will stay in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. That will mean about 1 to 3 inches of snow in Des Moines...but up to 6 or 8 inches of snow over SW Iowa, NE Nebraska and NW Missouri.

There is also a Dense Fog Advisory for portions of eastern Iowa. Fog has been a huge problem there over the last few days. Visibilities will fall below 1/4 mile.

It will be windy Saturday night and Sunday.
Travel will be difficult south and west of Des Moines.
Folks north of Highway 30 could miss all the weather action this weekend. was warm enough today for Vicki Van Donselaar to use the clothes line to dry the wash. Great weather for now... but stay tuned for the big changes this weekend.

As always...tune into 13.2 for the latest forecasts. Also follow on Twitter @EdWilsonWX13HD for more updates on this storm.
