According to the National Weather Service, widespread snowfall between 2-4 inches is expected primarily in areas along and south of Interstate 80 in Iowa. There is also the chance for some freezing drizzle developing late Friday night.

Road crews have pretreated numerous major roads in anticipation of the mixture of freezing rain, sleet and snow.

Temperatures will reach into the mid-20s Friday and into the lower 30s over the weekend, the weather service said.

"Light freezing rain develops after midnight and will continue into the first half of Sunday", said RTV 6 meteorologist Kyle Mounce. Freezing rain is possible.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties.

The chance of rain increases to 100 percent overnight Saturday and into Sunday.

The snow is expected to come in three waves starting with tonight's storm. The entire region has the potential for freezing rain tonight as temperatures drop below 32°. Even when the snow ends, it will still be a fairly cloudy start to the new week with morning temperatures in the single digits and teens. More snow is expected before then with additional accumulation making for a wintery weekend. Cloudy, with a high near 33. We may see the sun peek through by the early evening hours, but the cold will hold strong throughout the day with temperatures hovering in the upper 20s.
