A couple of winter storm systems are bringing snow to parts of Iowa today. National Weather Service meteorologist Rod Donovan says western Iowa will receive one to two inches."We’re expecting that to gradually diminish throughout the day," Donovan says, "and then another band will take over somewhere across southeast Iowa, as this area of low pressure wraps up over Missouri into Illinois, where you could see a band of possibly two to four inches.
Central and north parts (of Iowa) might not get much of anything…possibly a trace." The heaviest snow this afternoon is expected to hit places like Centerville, Ottumwa, Iowa City and Davenport.
Donovan says no advisories are posted for the state, but that could change for southeast Iowa, depending how the storm develops. Any snow that Iowa receives today probably won’t be melting much over the weekend.
Donovan says temperatures could be above freezing on Friday, but highs on Saturday and Sunday will be in the 20s, with lows in the single digits and teens. The forecast also calls for the possibly of traces of light snow Saturday and Monday.
