WEBVTT TO CHIEF METEOROLOGIST KURTIS GERTZ NOW. KURTIS: SNOWING DURING THE EVENING COMMUTE, AND I REALLY THINK IT WILL INTENSIFY AS THE EVENING GOES ON. MODERATE SNOWFALL HERE, TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 20’S. INITIALLY A FAIRLY HEAVY, WET SNOW. AS IT FINISHES OUT IT WILL BE A FAIRLY FLUFFY SNOW SO WE WILL TRANSITION WITH THAT WATER RATIO IN THE SNOW. IT FEELS LIKE 19. BANDS OF DARKER BLUE IS WHERE WE ARE PICKING UP THE MORE MODERATE SNOWFALL RIGHT NOW. BOOM BILL STARTING TO CREEP INTO THE NORTH SIDE OF THE METRO AS IT PUSHES THROUGH THE NORTH. WIDESPREAD SNOW SHOULD JUST ABOUT END AROUND four:00 IN THE MORNING. THE WIND NOT TOO BAD INITIALLY. TOMORROW MORNING THEY WILL START TO PICK UP AND BY TOMORROW AFTERNOON I THINK WE WILL HAVE A BLOWING SNOW ISSUE OUT THERE. THROUGH AT LEAST AROUND eleven:00 TONIGHT, THE SAME IN SOUTHERN IOWA, THEN WILL TAPER OFF AS WE HEAD INTO TUESDAY. WENT TO STORM WARNING FOR THE METRO UNTIL 6:00. AREAS TO THE WEST, WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES. LIGHTER TOTALS THERE BUT I THINK YOU ARE GETTING THE STORY AS IT SLOWLY PUSHES ON TO THE NORTH. A LOT OF SNOW WILL HAVE TO MOVE THROUGH. THE BACK EDGE OF THIS IS STARTING TO CLEAR EASTERN NEBRASKA BUT THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IS MOVING NORTHEAST. THAT WILL KEEP THE SNOW HERE IN CENTRAL AND EASTERN IOWA AS IT MOVES TO THE NORTHEAST. THE WINDS WILL START PICKING UP BY MIDMORNING AND START GUSTING BY MID AFTERNOON TOMORROW. I THINK WE WILL GET SOME GUSTS NEAR forty MILES AN HOUR. 11:00, A BAND OF HEAVY SNOW NEAR METRO AND THEN IT TAPERS OFF AND SPINS OUT. I THINK THERE COULD BE A FEW SNOW SHOWERS IN NORTHERN IOWA TOMORROW BUT GENERALLY THE PROBLEM WILL BE THE WIND AS THE DAY GOES ALONG. WHAT ARE WE EXPECTING FOR SNOWFALL TOTALS? IT LOOKS LIKE THE FARTHER WEST YOU ARE, LIKE TOTALS OUT THERE, AND THE FARTHER EAST AND NORTHEAST, THE HIGHER TOTALS ACROSS THE STATE. THERE IS THAT SUNSHINE ON WEDNESDAY. MY AMOUNTS OUT TO THE WEST. HIGH TOTALS EXPECTED ALONG THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER. HERE IN CENTRAL IOWA, IT LOOKS LIKE 4-6 INCHES OF SNOW. HAVE YOUR TOTALS CENTRAL AND EAST, LIGHTER TOTALS THE FARTHER WEST YOU ARE. OBVIOUSLY SIGNIFICANT SNOW AND WHEN YOU THROW IN THE WIND, BLOWING SNOW WILL BE A PROBLEM. 23 DEGREES, four-6 INCH TOTALS. A BETTER CHANCE OF SIX INCH OF AMOUNTS FOR THE EAST. GUSTY WINDS BLOWING SNOW WILL CLEAR LATE IN THE DAY. TOMORROW THE WIND WILL BE THE ISSUE, I THINK WE WILL SEE SOME SUNSHINE IN RED OAK, BY MID AFTERNOON. MORNING SNOW SHOWERS IN DENISON, BLOWING SNOW AND ISSUE FROM HAMPTON THROUGH TOLEDO AND THE SAME SCENARIO WITH BLOWING SNOW IN CENTERVILLE TOMORROW, ESPECIALLY AS THE WIND PICKS UP AS THE DAY GOES ALONG. WEDNESDAY, 29, THURSDAY 27. SNOW POTENTIAL FRIDAY AND…
