CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - A volley of snow-makers hit us last week, leading to our deepest snow depth since 2015. It was also pretty chilly as highs were 10 to 20 degrees below normal just about every single day. This week, however, will be quite different.

Weather systems will be bypassing us to the north and south this week. Snow accumulations are going to mostly be confined to the Northern Plains and Northwoods, while rain will hit the Ohio Valley. We’re sandwiched in between those two areas.

While we do have a chance of a wintry mix on Thursday, it’s a small potential and may end up not happening. Temperatures will also be much closer to normal with highs in the 20s and 30s. Some of the snow should melt away a bit.
