CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - The latest round of winter weather overnight dropped 1-4 inches of snow across Eastern Iowa, according to First Alert Storm Team Meteorologist Kaj O'Mara.

Several schools delayed the start of school or cancelled class for the day. Road conditions as of 6:30 a.m. ranged from 100% snow covered in east-central and northeast Iowa, to partially covered in southeast Iowa.

O'Mara said that winds will increase this morning and blowing snow could impact travel during the day. Temperatures will fall quickly this afternoon to below zero by this evening. Wind chills could reach -20 to -30 degrees.

Another round of snow is possible Saturday with high temperatures in the mid-20s.
