**Overnight update: Snow will continue to develop in bands across the state overnight. We will see the snow start to move into the central sections of the state by 1 AM.

The metro is still looking at 3″ to 5″ of snow…around 4″ is expected in Des Moines.
Up to 6″ totals will fall in isolated areas.

You can see the roads are getting slick around the state…leaving Des Moines Dry at Midnight…but the air will become saturated later this morning. Green shows normal roads…blue is wet roadway…pink is completely covered roads… orange shows mostly covered…yellow is partially covered.

Very little wind will come with this storm…roads will be slick, but the roads should remain passable. Road crews should have a good handle on this storm.

Dry weather is still in the forecast Christmas and Sunday.

Have a safe and happy holiday.
