Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Blizzard Watch  Statement as of 11:58 am CST on February 6, 2016


... Blizzard watch remains in effect from Sunday afternoon through
Monday morning...

* timing... late Sunday afternoon through Monday morning.

* Storm total snow accumulations... up to 2 inches.

* Winds/visibility... northwest winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts in
excess of 45 mph. Visibilities may drop below one quarter mile
for an extended period with near whiteout conditions possible
at times.

* Impacts... considerable blowing and drifting snow can create
treacherous travel conditions and even lead to nearly
impossible travel in some areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A blizzard watch means there is a potential for falling and/or
blowing snow with strong winds and extremely poor visibilities.
This can lead to whiteout conditions and make travel very
dangerous.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Des Moines Iowa 
540 am CST Sat Feb 6 2016 


..updated for 12z aviation discussion... 


Short term /today/... 
issued at 349 am CST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Rather benign short term forecast in terms of sensible weather. At 06z 
Sat...surface trough passing over County Warning Area. Freezing fog over Sioux Falls County Warning Area 
slowly advecting eastward. Given visibility field and current rate of 
advection at 06z Sat...fog may clip our northwest to northern County Warning Area by 
sunrise...but visibility not expected to drop much below 2 to 3 sm for 
any prolonged period of time. Forecast soundings show solid inversion 
persisting through Saturday...even into Sunday morning across the 
northern to northeastern County Warning Area. Have bumped up cloud cover and 
moderated daytime "heating" slightly as a result. 850mb temperatures on Friday 
were in the -4c to -7c range. For Sat... 850mb temperatures -1c to -3c so 
Sat maximum temperatures 5 to 10 degrees warmer for Sat vs Friday seems 
reasonable. 


Long term /tonight through Friday/... 
issued at 349 am CST Sat Feb 6 2016 


The long term forecast is punctuated by the potential for 
blizzard conditions across northern Iowa from Sunday afternoon 
through Monday morning. 


At 500 mb...a robust shortwave trough will sweep across the 
Dakotas and Minnesota on Saturday night...probably closing off as 
a low centered over northern Minnesota by Sunday morning. 
Subsequent reinforcing shortwaves will expand this low into a 
large gyre over the Great Lakes with a deep longwave trough 
carving out across the entire eastern half of the Continental U.S. For the 
first half of the work week. A western U.S. Ridge forming in 
response will eventually work its way eastward toward our region 
around the end of next week. 


In the lower levels and at the surface...southwest flow and weak 
ridging this evening will keep things pretty mild and dry tonight. 
On Sunday a surface low pressure center will develop rapidly 
across northern Minnesota in response to the strengthening upper 
level system...with its attendant trough sweeping from northwest 
to southeast across Iowa around Sunday afternoon and evening. A 
strong surface pressure gradient coupled with intense winds aloft 
and the development of a seasonally deep mixed layer will promote 
a significant increase in winds as the trough moves through. By 6 
PM Sunday forecast soundings for Mason City from both the GFS and 
NAM indicate a mixed layer extending up to nearly 800 mb with 
winds at the top blowing at 45 to 50 knots. Given the forcing 
associated with the upper level system and the meager but 
positive instability associated with the forecast soundings...it 
is likely that we will see a scenario in which snow showers form 
within and environment characterized by deep and turbulent 
boundary layer mixing. Combined with the deep snow pack in place 
across northern Iowa...generally averaging between 7 and 14 
inches...this creates an ideal set up for blizzard conditions and 
the blizzard watch remains in effect. In fact the watch has been 
expanded into five more northern Iowa counties where a deep snow 
pack also exists...and also extended through noon Monday as it 
appears there will be lingering snowfall on Monday morning along 
with what could be the strongest winds of the entire event. In 
short...travel conditions will become very hazardous once the 
strong winds and snow showers begin late Sunday. 


By Monday afternoon and evening the snow will depart and winds 
will diminish as the large stacked low pressure system moves off 
over the Great Lakes. The remainder of the forecast is then 
generally quiet. A weaker and quick moving system may produce 
some light snow over parts of Iowa on Wednesday...but solutions 
for that system are contingent on the evolution of the earlier 
week storm...and in any event it does not appear that any 
significant accumulation is likely and winds will be fairly weak 
around Wednesday so no hazardous impacts are anticipated at this 
time.

Aviation...06/12z 
issued at 535 am CST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Current ceilings and visibilities should effectively hold through Sat 
morning. Removed widepsread LIFR wording from pvs taf package. 
Gradual VFR from kfod to kdsm and to kotm may need tweaking on 
timing. Kept Kalo and kmcw out of VFR. Kalo and kmcw will likely 
need at least IFR Sunday night as blowing snow very possible.
