CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Wind speeds increase and temperatures drop along with chances of a rain/snow mix on Thursday.

Meteorologist Kaj O'Mara said Thursday starts out in the 30's, but temperatures drop and winds pick up for the evening commute.

"As this cold front moves across eastern Iowa, there is a slight opportunity for a rain/snow mix, though the impact on this looks very low," he said.

He said the wind and temperatures will be more noticeable than any precipitation that may fall briefly.

Wind chills dip below 0 degrees Thursday night and will stay that way through Friday night.

The next system arrives in the form of snow by Sunday morning, O' Mara said. It's still too early to get an idea of accumulation totals.

"It seems light to moderate accumulations are likely across Iowa and at the very least will cause some slick driving conditions again," O'Mara said.
