I'm really starting to acquire a very strong distaste for Iowa I-80 in the wintertime!!  After our trip at Christmas and 154 vehicles off the road between Des Moines and Davenport the day AFTER the big storm, Clark is saying if it's as bad as the guys at work are calling for then he's not going to let me drive  Angry
 
I don't understand why a man who's been forecasting for presidents and military maneuvers himself can't sit down and look and is relying on the rest of his career field.

Hmmmm,
 
Well we are supposed to be getting 1-3" of snow through today...more tomorrow.  Driving right through KC...who's supposed to get 3-5"...the whole shit is just gonna push us up that way.
 
DJ hates driving in the snow because of the other idiots....we'll keep you posted on our decision.

Most of our snow is supposed to come tomorrow and if that's the case we'll be fine to drive down on Friday.  
 
They are forecasting 5-10 inches west of us - let's hope it stays there and not here.

Steph, I THINK that you are gonna be ok. If you get to Kansas City and it starts to get bad, just put up in a motel and drive on in the next day. My treat. I'm hauling a big ole present for Brandon that I made so you gotta be here.  
 
 I spent every winter having to drive in snow where wrecks wer everywhere due to my job. Just gotta slow down and take your time.  
 
Anyway, signing off now. We are heading to Decatur Illinois shortly and spend the night with relatives. See you there Thursday!

Steph I'll get Clark to have a look at the specific models along your route and give a personalized forecast for you guys.
 
Remember, follow what the tractor trailers do,  years of driving highways in severe winter weather has seen me arrive alive through all kinds of messes (including our 19 hour adventure through ice and whiteouts at Christmas) by NOT following other cars and paying attention to what the truckers are doing.
 
Will let you know what he says.

Ok, as of 11:30 a.m. central time, first bands of snow have begun in Omaha NE with temps dropping rapidly from 33F - 26F in a 30 min. span causing black ice conditions on main arteries within the area.  Interstate 80 went from a few flakes to visibility variance of 2 miles down to as little as 1/4 mile with accumulation beginning.
 
First, the models are not in agreement on this storm any more than they were on any of the others to hit NE/KS/MO/IA over the last 45 days.  They don't seem to be able to pinpoint the track or precip until 12 hours out and often not accurately until 6 hours out.
 
That being said, Clark has requested that I use his usual disclaimer:  "Don't shoot the messenger, I am in sales, not manufacturing."
 
Deej and Steph, for travelling tomorrow from Wichita to KC you will be following the storm the entire way.  Things get interesting from KC on - if you are taking 35 to Des Moines and then I-80 to Davenport expect to drive right into the heart of it tomorrow with expected conditions to be moderate to heavy snowfall with blowing snow.  Totals are estimated to be in the 4-7" range.  Below is a precip map Clark created for you, and his advice is a night in KC or travel Friday - OR - since the snow would add 2-3 hours onto your travel anyway taking 35/80 (red line) that you may want to swing over to St. Louis and up (blue line) adding another 100 miles to your trip.
 
You can expect road conditions to be snowcovered with reduced visibilities and difficult to dangerous travel conditions.  Use the 511 service for IA (or any state) either online or by dialing 511 to get up to the min. road conditions.  Iowa has an exceptionally good track record with their 511 service and has been spot on every time I've used them.  This is anticipated to be a snow only precip event so there won't be any freezing rain anticipated prior, during or after the storm.  He figures I'll be able to drive it no trouble on Friday even with the blowing conditions as the ice will not be a factor as it had in previous storms.
 

 
 
Sorry guys, wish I could have brought you better news, I want to see that little guy as bad as anyone and also have a gift for him;  However I want you to make your decisions based on all the available data you can get.  
 
Anyone planning to travel from west to east should keep a very close monitor on the conditions as previously stated the models just aren't in agreement on how much snow is going to hit or the exact timing.  We weren't supposed to even start with the snow until after 3:00 pm and we picked up a 1/2" in a 30 min. time frame (just happened to be the 30 damn min. I was on I-80 of course....)
 
Call me for any further info and I'll keep you posted.

Snow showers predicted here tomorrow and Friday with not much accumulation. We'll be heading north Friday morning and hopefully IDOT will have the roads clear by then.
To those traveling tomorrow, be safe and we'll see you Friday afternoon!

Cheesy Cheesy Had a call from Jean....she's landed.  Also had a call from the hotel. I guess she's already tearing the place up....why they calling me...we won't be in until tomorrow.  They'll just have to handle it. Grin
 
Our weather doesn't look so good either.  We have to go around the bottom of Lake Michigan....can be a trick when the weather is bad.  But......we're going no matter what!!!!
 
See you all soon....... Cheesy

Ummmm not entirely sure Mike, but I'm pretty sure they don't let Clark check out commercial flights and potential delays on military computers Tongue
 
I think the only way you can know about flight delays is by calling the airline the night before or day of your flight.  Undecided
 
 
As an update, we have received a fair amount of snow here in Omaha already and most of it seems to be going straight sideways - which truly perplexes my little pea brain - just how does one get accumulation on the ground when the snow is not actually falling 'down' but simply blowing straight sideways.
 
Haven't heard any further developments from Clark as to any changes in the above weather pattern though.  He should be home within the hour and if there's any changes I'll update.

   Although that was a somewhat rhetorical question, thanks for the thought Cat. I looked at their report and it sounds like it will snow, but only an inch or so. Should be no problem (so I say now).
