The featured image is a wind rose for the Des Moines Airport this month. It is fairly obvious that northwest flow has dominated and is a big reason why temperatures have been below normal. The first in a series of storms will help break up this persistent flow pattern, but warmer temperatures will only be brief. A considerable amount of snowfall is even expected in Northern Iowa with these next storms!

Good = 33
Bad = 5
