It wasn’t the big storm I anticipated it would be but I am happy we got some snow.

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -Winter is here! The first major winter storm of the season could bring heavy snow to Eastern Iowa Wednesday into Thursday. A Winter Storm Watch goes into effect for most of Iowa beginning Wednesday, continuing through Thursday afternoon.  An area of low pressure is expected to track from Northern Oklahoma to St. Louis to Michigan. This puts Eastern Iowa in a favorable placement for significant snow. It’s important to note that the track of this low pressure will, as always, have a large impact on what exactly we receive, and how much. If the low tracks more to the north or west, precipitation could begin as rain or a rain/snow mix then transition to snow. While that scenario does not appear likely, it is something our meteorologists are watching.
Right now a band of 4 to 8 inches is possible with some enhanced heavier totals possible. The snowfall begins Wednesday evening and continues into Thursday morning. It may begin as a mix for a period of time on Wednesday.
In addition to the snow, winds will pick up Wednesday night. This would cause significant blowing snow, along with some drifting. Road conditions will likely be poor, especially in open areas where wind-blown snow will cover roads even after they’ve been cleared.
The First Alert Storm Team will continue to monitor the latest data and provide updates as the details of this winter storm become clearer. We’ll deliver the latest information on KCRG-TV9, KCRG WxNOW, KCRG.com, the KCRG Weather App and on Facebook & Twitter (@kcrg_firstalert).

 

 


What’s that they are spraying in our skies?


I got a phone call yesterday regarding the chemtrails being sprayed into our skies over Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Do you ever wonder if the conspiracy theories are true about the chemtrails and HARRP?

If you don’t know what I am talking about, sit down, this one is hard to swallow.

According to some conspiracy theorists there are planes that create storms by laying chemicals in the sky. Is it a conspiracy? Or could it be possible? The more I document the chemtrails and the weather that occurs after the patterns are laid the more it’s starting to look like it could be possible.
