Snow Slowing, But Travel Remains Challenging In Eastern Iowa

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Snow is slowing in many parts of Eastern iowa, but travel challenges remained Monday afternoon.

As of 2 p.m. Mlonday, road conditions were beginning to improve around Eastern Iowa. Roads in the Iowa City area, where officials were not recommending travel earlier Monday, had improved to the point that many roads, including Highway 6 and Interstate 80, were being reported as wet or partially snow-covered.

Conditions weren't yet as favorable to the north and east of Cedar Rapids, including Highway 30 and Highway 151, which were reported as being partially or mostly covered with ice and slush.

The latest winter storm was expected to leave 1-3" of snow in southern Iowa and 3-6" from Iowa City northward. Most of the accumulating snow has now wrapped up, though a few trailing snow showers and flurries are possible into the afternoon.

Main roads will likely remain slick and snow covered through the day as road crews work to clear the snow, so your evening commute may also be slick.
