A wintry mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow has been falling this afternoon across eastern Iowa.

Areas northwest of Waterloo last night have seen several inches of heavy wet snow. The photo to the left shows just a few reports as of this afternoon.

The temperatures are forecast to drop a few degrees from where they are this afternoon. This will transition the wintry mix to all snow in most of eastern Iowa later tonight. The question is: When does the snow accumulate? And where?

There is a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY in effect through Friday morning for the shaded area on the map to the left. The advisory extends all the way to Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Central Iowa has the best chance of getting an additional 4 inches or more of snow tonight.

The snow amounts taper off eastward to around 1 inch near Dubuque.

The roads will be slick for a period of time later tonight into early Friday morning.

The temperatures are forecast to warm a few degrees to change the snow to rain by mid morning.

Rain is expected Friday through Saturday. Some of the rain could be heavy at times Friday, Friday night and Saturday morning. The rain will be lighter Saturday afternoon through Sunday before the chance of rain end.

The map to the left shows how much rain is expected through Saturday evening.

Once this storm pulls away next week will be dry with sunshine and temperatures warming to near 70 degrees for a few days.

Any snow that falls tonight will melt with the rain and warmer temperatures through the weekend.
