CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) -Even though snow fell this morning, it will melt this afternoon.


We’re waking up to a wintry morning across parts of Eastern Iowa. Dubuque has 4.2 inches of new snow on the ground and 4 inches of snow fell in Iowa City.  Most of the snow has already left Eastern Iowa and will exit the state by mid to late morning. However, a Winter Weather Advisory is still in effect for some of our eastern and southeastern counties (Johnson, Jones, Cedar, and Dubuque) until 1 p.m. Despite the snowy start to the weekend, this afternoon will be spring like with a partly cloudy sky and highs reaching the upper 40s and low 50s.
