Could Eastern Iowa See Snow This Weekend?

By Justin Gehrts, Meteorologist

Sunday is continuing to look like an active day across the Midwest. Here in our area, it is looking more like snow than anything else. However, the strength and track are very much in question at this time. Several models suggest a few inches of snow for eastern Iowa on Sunday, while others miss us completely. Here is a snapshot of Sunday....we'll continue to make adjustments as the system gets closer and new data arrives. -Kaj O'Mara, KCRG-TV9 Meteorologist

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Cedar Rapids’ streak of 276 days without snow may be coming to an end soon.

The KCRG-TV9 First Alert Storm Team is watching for the potential of wintry weather Sunday into Monday. There is still uncertainty about how this weather system will evolve, and temperatures will play a key role in who receives a mix of rain and snow and who receives just snow.

The forecast track of this system has changed several times over the past few days, and will probably continue to do so. At this point, however, it does appear that parts of Iowa will receive accumulating snow, starting sometime on Sunday.

Iowans should stay updated on the First Alert Forecast over the coming days, as it may be the first notable winter weather system in our part of the Midwest so far this season.

There is also a chance of a mix of rain and snow this Friday, but that system should not pose significant travel issues.
