Rain, snow and ice will affect Iowa travel
CLOSER A MINUTE. WHAT IS YOUR TIME FOR ALL THIS? WELL, FOR SOME OF US THIS IS A BEGINNING. AND PARTS OF OUR SOUTHWESTERN COUNTRIES ARE HERE TODAY AFTERNOON AND THIS MAXIMUM SHADOW HERE BETWEEN NOW UNTIL 2:00 PM, THIS IS WHEN WE EXPECT TO BEGIN RAINFALL HERE IN THE METRO DE MOINES PROBABLY WILL BE RIGHT AROUND 2:00 PM THIS IS IN THE NORTH EAST. IF YOU ARE IN NORTH AND NORTH EAST IOWA. PAINTING WILL BEGIN BETWEEN 5 AND 8 P.M. AND SOME OF IT WILL START WITH A WINTER MIX, LIKE A LITTLE RAIN MIXED WITH SNOW, BEFORE WE EVERYTHING IS TURNING TO SNOW HERE LATER THIS EVENING. ACTUALLY THE GRAPHICS DON’T LOOK FORWARD. LET ME GO HERE FOR A SECOND. LOOK CAREFULLY AT THIS MAP OF THE START OF PRECITATION HERE AS WE GO TO THE NEXT PAIR OF HOURS HERE. I’M SORRY. AND WE ARE MOVING FORWARD AND LOOKING AT OUR CREST AND SKY CAM. THEREFORE, WE ARE FACING TO THE SOUTHWEST HERE WHERE SOME OF THESE PRECIPITATIONS HAVE NOT REACHED THE MAXIMUM PART. AND MORE, BUT YOU CAN ALREADY SEE SUCH CLOUNY SKYS ON THE SITE AND WET ROADS THAT ARE CURRENTLY HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. TEMPERATURE 32. SO HOW THIS BEGINS, IT WILL PROBABLY START WITH RAIN AND SOMETHING MAY FREEZE ON CONTACT IN A PART OF SOUTHWESTERN IOWA. LOOK AT YOUR TEMPERATURE HERE ON THIS DAY. YOU CAN SEE AREAS AND BLUE HERE. THOSE WHERE IT IS AT THIS TIME AT OR BELOW FROST. SO WHEN THE PAINTING BEGINS, THIS IS WHERE WE WILL LIKELY SEE ICE. BUT YOU NOTE HERE FROM METRO DES MOINES, EVEN TO THE SOUTH, YOU STILL SEE THE PLACES THAT ARE FREEZING OR ABOVE. SO INITIALLY WHEN THIS BEGINS, OUR ROADS HERE WILL BE WET AND NOT ICE AT THE FIRST TIME. SO THIS IS A LOOK AT THE RADAR. YOU CAN SEE WE ARE ALREADY STARTING TO SEE PRETTY MUCH RAIN, POSSIBLY A LITTLE FREEZING RAIN WHERE TEMPERATURES ARE AT OR ABOVE FREEZING. WHAT WILL DO HERE IS TO SHOW YOU HOW THIS IS PROGRESS. WHERE YOU SEE SOME OF THESE YELLOWS HERE ON THE RADAR, THIS IS SUCH A LAYER. IN AREAS TO THE NORTH OF THIS WE INITIALLY SEE SNOW. BUT SOUTH FROM THIS, HERE IS WHERE WE ARE BEGIN TO SEE THIS MIXTURE. AND SO, YES, WE WILL SEE THAT IT BEGINS FROM THE BEGINNING, THAT THE ICE RAIN MIXED WITH A LITTLE RAIN. BUT IN THE FINAL CASE WHEN THE COLD AIR COMES BACK, IT PASSES. ALL OF US ARE MOVING OUT HERE TO GET SNOW AS WE GET LATER THIS EVENING. SO THIS IS THE UPPER LEVEL OF THE STORM SYSTEM IS NOW PULLING OUT OF THE DESERT, FROM THE PLAINS TO THE UPPER MIDDLE WEST. IT WILL PASS RIGHT OVER CENTRAL IOWA. SO WE EXPECT SEVERAL CONSEQUENCES FROM THIS AS THIS LOW PRESSURE AREA RAISE TO THE NORTH-EAST. SO HERE IS THE HOURLY FORECAST HERE AS WE APPROACH 3 PM YOU CAN SEE SOME OF IT BEGIN LIKE YOUNG RAIN MIXED WITH A LITTLE RAIN. BUT AS THE COLD AIR STARTS TO ENTER, WE WILL START TO SEE THIS TRANSITION HERE INTO THE SNOW. THEN AS WE APPROACH TO 7PM HERE FROM 6 TO 7PM THIS IS WHEN WE EXPECT SOME OF THE BIGGEST SNOWFALLS TO HAPPEN WITH THIS SYSTEM. WE COULD TALK SNOWFALL RATES FROM 1 TO 3 INCHES PER HOUR, ESPECIALLY FROM DE MOINE TO THE WEST. VISIBILITY WILL BE STRONGLY PROHIBITED AT THIS TIME. BY THAT TIME, CLOSE TO 10:00 PM, SOME OF THE HEAVY SNOW IS RIPPING NORTH. LESS SNOWFALL, LESS RAIN IN THE SOUTH, ORIGINALLY DUE TO LITTLE RAIN. AND AS WE APPROACH THE NIGHT HOURS, IN PARTS OF SOUTH EAST IOWA SEE A LITTLE DRY AND THEN MORE SNOW, NOT LESS, BACK TO THE WEST HERE AS WE ENTER TODAY’S NIGHT AND, FINALLY, TOMORROW MORNING. AND THEN THE SYSTEM WILL CLEAN AS WE MEET TOMORROW. MOSTLY CLOUDY EXPECTED. SO YOUR SNOW FORECAST IS HERE RIGHT FOR THE MORNING IN THE METRO AREA, WE STILL HAVE 3 TO 6 INCHES. Ultimately, IT COULD CHANGE JUST A LITTLE MORE DEPENDING ON THE PATH OF THE STORM SYSTEM. BUT YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT LARGE AMOUNT WILL BE SENT TO THE WEST HERE. 6″ TO 9″ IN THIS SHADING FOR PLACES LIKE ALGONA TO FORT DODGE, 9″ TO 12″. TO THE WEST WHERE WE EXPECT SOME OF THIS REALLY HEAVY STRIP TO BE INSTALLED WITH THIS UPCOMING STORM SYSTEM. BUT IF YOU ARE IN THE SOUTH OF DEMOINE WHERE WE HAVE SOME OF THIS WARM AIR BREAKING IN, THIS WILL NOT BE A BIG BUSINESS FOR YOU, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE SOUTH OF US. 34 HERE TO THE IOWA AND MISSOURI BORDER. Barely reaching the trace to one inch. SO THIS IS ALL SUPPLIED HERE BETWEEN NOW TO 6:00 PM, WE EXPECT REPAIR TO BEGIN, PROBABLY MIXED DRAINAGE AND SNOW IN THE WEST BETWEEN 6:00 PM TO MIDNIGHT. THIS IS WHEN WE EXPECT THE BEST SNOW AND THE WORST TRAVELING CONDITIONS. AND WHEN WE MEET ON THURSDAY MORNING, THE SNOW WILL BEGIN TO FRESH. BUT WE STILL EXPECT PROBLEMS WITH TRAVEL, ESPECIALLY FROM DEMOINE, EVEN TO THE NORTHWEST. HERE LOOK AT THE EIGHT DAY FORECAST. THIS IS IN THE FINAL CLEARING HOW WE MEET TOMORROW. ON FRIDAY WE ARE UNTIL 26. THEN OUR NEXT CHANCE FOR A LITTLE SN
