Snow, ice heading into Iowa on Saturday night

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowans across much of the state are preparing for a wintery blast that’s predicted to bring up to 8 inches of snow to some areas.

The National Weather Service says a winter system is expected to bring snow and ice Saturday night, starting in Iowa’s southwest corner and moving up to its northeast corner.

South-central areas are expected to see less accumulation — between 3 to 5 inches in the Des Moines area — while more southern regions could see up to 8 inches of snow.

Meteorologists say light snow is expected to begin around midafternoon Saturday in central Iowa and gradually get heavier into the night until about 3 a.m. Sunday.

Frigid conditions follow, with temperatures expected to drop to and remain in the single digits on Monday.
