I WILL BE DISCONTINUING THIS WEBSITE AS OF Thursday Jan 17th, 2019 . I HAVE BEEN KEEPING DATA ON HOW MANY PEOPLE ACTUALLY REFER TO THIS SITE FOR WEATHER AND FRANKLY, THE NUMBERS ARE WAY DOWN COMPARED TO OTHER SITES. DES MOINES, IA HAS A LOT OF WEATHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE. I HAVE HAD THE SITE GOING SINCE 1995.

There are no active watches, warnings or advisories
