DES MOINES, Iowa — Light snow is expected to fall across the metro starting between 5 and 6 p.m. Thursday.

While accumulations of only 1” to 2” are expected, roads will likely be slick so use caution while driving.

High pressure will move Friday afternoon, which will bring a surge of cold air to start the weekend. We won’t make it up much higher than the middle to upper teens for both Friday and Saturday before we start to see it warm back up.

A bigger system is expected to move in for early Sunday, which is expected to bring higher snow totals. We will continue to update you on the latest track of this storm throughout the next few days.
