Snow has started filling in across eastern Iowa this morning. There will be a tight gradient between areas that see no snow and a couple inches. That gradient is expected to fall right along the highway 20 corridor. Areas like Waterloo to Dubuque will see totals around a trace to two inches. Locations north of highway 20 are more likely to see just a few snowflakes and no accumulation. Areas south of highway 20 will see two to four inches of snow. Along and south of I-80 could see totals over four inches to around six.
No matter the snow accumulation, roads will be slick through much of the day. Snow will be heaviest from highway 30 and to the south. A Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisory is posted for these locations that will see the most amount of snow through the day. Be sure to use caution if you must travel.
Luckily winds will be on the light side from the east at 5-10 mph. Highs will be around freezing.
Snow will come to an end this evening from the west to east direction. Lows will be around 20 and winds will be from the northeast at 5-10 mph.
We’ll see more sunshine Sunday and it will be a good weather day to clean up after the snow. Highs will be around freezing again with skies clearing. Winds will also be light and variable.
The rest of the week is pretty quiet. Temperatures will stay a bit above normal around freezing with a few 40s possible Tuesday. A few snow showers could be possible by Friday or Saturday.
