Updated: 10 hours ago

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Scattered snow showers may continue into early afternoon for portions of eastern Iowa, especially east. Plan on highs into the 30s around lunchtime, then start falling into the afternoon and early evening as the northwest wind picks up. Tomorrow, another system is on the way and a general 2-5″ of snow is expected for most areas along and north of I-80. Less than 2″ is expected south of I-80 at this time. Given the fluffy consistency of this incoming snowfall, patchy blowing snow is possible in rural areas. Colder temperatures will build in on Sunday, likely dropping the wind chill as cold as -15 by Sunday morning. This cold air will stick around for all of next week with lows on most nights down below zero.
