Scattered flurries are flying across much of the state, but no accumulation of snow is expected. A more significant snow event is coming over the weekend, according to National Weather Service Meteorologist Craig Cogill. “As we move into Saturday and Saturday night, we are going to see a system move through the Midwest producing snow across the entire state of Iowa, generally 1 to 3 inches,” Cogill said. “The good thing is there will be very little wind with the snowfall, so it shouldn’t have too big of an impact.”

The weekend snowfall will likely stick around for a while, as temperatures are not expected to climb above freezing anytime too soon. “We are going to see the cold weather stick around into next week, really little relief seen in any way of warming up,” Cogill said. Prior to Saturday’s snow, the forecast calls for mostly clear conditions tonight, with lows across the state ranging from zero to the mid-teens.

Friday will be sunny with highs in the 20s to low 30s.
