Snow will still be lingering into the morning commute from Waterloo to Elkader and anywhere south and east and will continue on and off through the rest of the morning. As temperatures warm in the afternoon to near or just slightly above freezing, isolated pockets of a wintry mix will be possible.
Snow will finally begin to taper off through Friday night with lows in the upper 20's and an otherwise cloudy sky. Overall accumulations will range between a trace to 4” with Waterloo seeing around 1-2” and Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, and Iowa City around 1-3 with isolated 4” amounts.
