Another round of snow entered western Iowa this morning and will gradually spread across the entire state through the day. National Weather Service Meteorologist Rod Donovan says the snow will reach the Des Moines area around noon and eastern Iowa by 3 p.m.

Donovan says the precipitation will stay in the form of snow, with two to three inches expected in most areas. Southern Iowa could receive up to five inches. Donovan says light, but steady snow will accumulate through tomorrow morning. Friday will be mostly dry, before another storm arrives on Saturday.

"Right now it looks we will be having another round of snow, possibly mixed with a little bit of sleet or even freezing rain across southern Iowa," Donovan said. He’s also warning Iowans that the coldest temperatures of the season will arrive this weekend, with highs in the teens. A snow advisory is posted through tonight.
