CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Our next system will move through eastern Iowa Saturday night and into Sunday morning bringing the next chance of accumulating snow.

The majority of the day on Saturday will be dry and cloudy. There is the chance that a few isolated snow showers could pop up in the afternoon, but the majority of the activity looks to move into the TV9 viewing area past 7-8 p.m. Saturday night. Snow will be falling through the overnight hours and moving to the east and should move out of the area between 6-7 a.m.

Areas from Tama-Cedar Rapids and to the north could see the potential of 2-4″ of snowfall from our next system. Cold air in place will lead to a fluffier consistency that could pile up quickly. This could lead to slick road conditions Sunday morning as well. Areas south of Cedar Rapids could see trace amounts to 2″ of snow.
