Winter weather advisory is in place for the counties shaded in purple. This includes Des Moines.
The pink counties have a winter storm warning.
The National Weather Service has changed up the forecast this afternoon.
I still think we will see more rain through the evening and overnight hours. There will be areas of snow to the north of Des Moines…and it could be heavy at times. But Polk County is on the rain to snow line.
There is a chance for 5 to 7 inches of snow in the Interstate 35 corridor from Ames to Mason City.
There will be a period of rain changing to snow overnight in Des Moines…but we would only see light accumulation of snow in grassy areas.
Stay tuned for our forecasts tonight….road conditions could be slick in northern Iowa.
