CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - So far this winter, only a handful of snow events have occurred. Nearly all of them have missed the Des Moines and Ames area entirely. In fact, parts of the Des Moines metro area have failed to even reach one inch of snowfall so far this season. The lack of snow extends farther east toward Williamsburg and even stretches up along the Highway 151 corridor.
This is really only a matter of good luck (or bad luck if you are in snow removal), though. Southern Iowa has received plenty of snow and remains above normal for the season. Over the next 10 days, very little snow is expected in Iowa as temperatures remain above normal.
