CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS2/Fox28) -- A strong winter storm will move into eastern Iowa Friday and bring snow across the area. Winter Storm Watches and Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for the whole area ahead of the snow. Snow will begin late Friday morning in the north and become more widespread through the day. Moderate to heavy snow will be likely, especially in the evening.
The morning commute will be dry, but the evening commute will likely be slick. On top of snow falling, strong winds could lead to blowing snow and reduce visibility even further.
Snowfall totals will not vary too much across eastern Iowa. The entire area will likely have around five inches of snow, with amounts as high as eight inches possible. There is still uncertainty on where those higher totals will be, though.
Snow will wind down by midday Saturday. Arctic air will surge into eastern Iowa and temperatures will bottom out near and below zero Sunday morning. Wind chills will be 10 to 15 degrees below zero.
