***FIRST ALERT DAY FROM FRIDAY (NOON) UNTIL 10 AM SATURDAY FOR SNOW AND POOR TRAVEL CONDITIONS***
Cloudy skies and fog develop overnight keeping lows in the 20s. Widespread snow develops Friday afternoon and this system could leads to some shoveling!
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for portions of southeast Iowa where 5 to 8 inches of snow could fall. A Winter Weather Advisory has been
issued for portions of east central Iowa and parts of west central Illinois. In the Advisory area as much as 2 to 4 inches of snow is possible.

strong east winds will be blowing the snow causing lowered visibility in open areas. With milder temperatures drifting won’t be too much of an issue.
