The snow is staying to the northwest of the central Iowa area. Des Moines is going to stay warm enough to keep the umbrellas over your head.
In northwestern Iowa 5 to 7 inches of snow will keep the shovels on the sidewalks and driveways.
There is a winter storm watch for the northwest. The snow will be wet and heavy.
Cold and dry air takes over the rest of the weekend…and most of next week.
