Sunshine is back Wednesday ahead of soggy weather



MIGHT BE THE RIGHT DAY TO DO IT. IT’S GOING TO BE PRETTY DECENT. ABSOLUTELY. YES. SPECIALLY COMPARED TO THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS, PROBABLY OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW. WE’RE STARTING OFF YOUR WEDNESDAY WITH A NICE LOOK AT THAT FULL MOON IN WESTERN SKY HERE OVER DES MOINES. WE’VE GOT JUST A COUPLE OF THIN CLOUDS, AT LEAST IN THE METRO AREA. TEMPERATURES A LITTLE BIT COLDER, THOUGH, THAN YESTERDAY AT THIS POINT, 23 AND JUST ENOUGH FOR MOISTURE TO THAT A LITTLE BIT AS SOME FROST OUTSIDE AS WELL. THE CAR WAS OUT OVERNIGHT. MIGHT NEED TO SCRAPE THE WINDSHIELD JUST A BIT COUPLE OF PATCHES OF FOG HERE TO MAINLY OVER IN EASTERN IOWA BUT LOOKED AND PLACES LIKE ALGONA MORE CENTERVILLE COUPLE REDUCED VISIBILITIES IN THOSE SPOTS. NOW AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE DAY, THESE NUMBERS YOU SEE HERE, THESE WINDCHILLS IN THE TEENS AND TWENTIES, THOSE WILL GO UP AND END UP BEING PRETTY NICE. BUT THERE WILL BE A SPREAD FROM TO SOUTH UPPER 20 EAST TOWARDS THE MINNESOTA BORDER FORTIES HERE DOWN TOWARDS CENTRAL IOWA AND NEAR 50. AS YOU HEAD DOWN TOWARDS MISSOURI SO SUNNY, MILDER TODAY FOR MOST OF US, TOMORROW IS WHEN THINGS GET INTERESTING. RAIN A LOT OF WINTRY MIX AND THEN SOME SNOW SETS UP IN NORTHERN IOWA THROUGH THE NIGHT TOMORROW. SO WE’RE GOING TO JUMP HOUR BY HOUR TO ABOUT THIS TIME TOMORROW MORNING. WELL, 6 A.M., WE’LL CALL IT STILL DRY SKIES, BUT CLOUDS WILL BE ADVANCING ON IN. AND THEN THE PRECIPITATION COMES IN, TOO, FROM THE SOUTH AND WEST. SO MORNING TIME FRAME, SOUTHWEST, PROBABLY SOME RAIN, BUT ALONG THE LEADING EDGE THAT RAINFALL, TEMPERATURES MIGHT BE COLD ENOUGH, AT LEAST THE GROUND LEVEL TO SEE A LITTLE BIT OF SOME FREEZING RAIN OR A LITTLE BIT OF A WINTRY MIX. AND THEN AS WE WARM THROUGH THE DAY, EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE TO JUST RAIN, AT LEAST FROM ABOUT, LET’S SAY, HIGHWAY 30 SOUTHWARD LATER THE AFTERNOON TOWARDS THE EVENING IS WHEN NORTHERN IOWA, YOU’LL START TO SEE SOME OF THAT PRECIPITATION CHANGE OVER TO SOME SNOW AND THEN STAY SNOW DURING THE NIGHT WHILE FURTHER SOUTH SOUTHERN, I DON’T THINK REALLY SEE ANYTHING BUT RAIN. IT’S KIND OF BETWEEN THAT HIGHWAY 22 I 80. SO THAT’LL BE KIND OF A MIXTURE AT TIMES THROUGH LATE TOMORROW EVENING AND INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS BEFORE EVERYTHING KIND OF PULLS AWAY FROM US INTO EARLY ON FRIDAY. SO AS FAR AS OUR AMOUNTS GO, SNOWFALL WISE, THE MAIN STORY IS GOING TO BE UP TO THE NORTH, NORTHERN THIRD OF THE STATE HERE AS WE HEAD UP TOWARDS PLACES LIKE FORT DODGE, HUMBOLDT, ALGONA, OVER TOWARDS EAGLE GROVE AND CLARION THREE, FOUR INCHES, THEY THINK WE COULD SAY RIGHT NOW. AND THOSE AMOUNTS DROP OFF DRAMATICALLY AS YOU HEAD FURTHER TO THE SOUTH. DES MOINES METRO PROBABLY NOT MUCH IN THE SNOW DEPARTMENT MIGHT BE JUST A TOUCH OF AN ICY GLAZE THOUGH, AS THIS MOISTURE COMES ON IN. SO EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT SEEING SNOW, YOU STILL MIGHT A COUPLE OF DICEY TRAVEL SPOTS OUT THERE AS YOU HEAD TOWARDS THE EVENING COMMUTE TOMORROW. ON THURSDAY. ONCE WE HAD PAST THURSDAY, SYSTEM, THEN WE’LL JUST SEE SOME LINGERING CLOUDS INTO FRIDAY SATURDAY WHEAT LITTLE SYSTEM DRIFTS ON BY MIGHT SEE A SPOT OR TWO OR RAINDROP AND THEN SUNDAY’S DRY BEFORE OUR NEXT ONE COMES ALONG HERE NEXT WEEK. THAT SYSTEM AT LEAST AT THIS STAG
