****Wednesday evening update for storm Thursday night through Friday****

A winter storm is still on track for central Iowa Thursday afternoon through Friday morning. Heavier amounts of snow are expected late Thursday night through Friday morning.

3″ to 5″ of new snow will be common over central Iowa…but there will be pockets of 6″ to 8″.

Expect periods of heavier snow over Des Moines between 1 AM and 6 AM Friday.

This system is slowing down, which means more time for snow to accumulate. There will be very little wind with the storm. No advisories, watches or warnings have been issued for central Iowa. That could change tomorrow.

If you don’t have to drive late Thursday through Friday….stay put.

Air travel is not expected to be greatly impacted. There may be delays Thursday night through early Friday….but this will be a slow moving storm that will give road and run-way crews time to move snow.
