Much of the Iowa’s southeastern half will be under a Winter Weather Advisory starting at six o’clock tonight and running through most of Saturday. Meteorologist Craig Cogil, at the National Weather Service, says moderate snow accumulations are expected. “We are going to see snow spread across the state overnight tonight and continue on Saturday before ending,” Cogil says. “Looks like southeastern Iowa will get anywhere from three to six inches. You head up towards the central part of the state, maybe two to four, and then lighter amounts farther north.”
Cogil says high temperatures this weekend will only be in the teens and 20s with dry conditions expected Sunday, but there’s another chance for snow by late Monday into Tuesday. “We’ll see another system head up towards the state,” Cogil says. “It looks like similar snowfall amounts during that time as well.”
Another shot of colder air is expected by the middle part of next week.
