Snow on the roads

Posted: 09 Nov 2011 06:01 AM

Our first major winter storm of the season is dumping wet snow over most of the central portion of the state. Slushy snowfall totals have been reported over 6 inches to the southwest of Des Moines so far this morning. The featured map is of Iowa State Patrol road conditions showing roads in southeast Iowa just wet with the snow covered roads to the west in the central part of the state. This snow will have a tough time sticking around as ground temperatures are still warm and air temperatures are expected to be well above freezing during the daytime.

Good = 11
Bad = 2
