DES MOINES, Iowa — The snow stopped falling late Friday night into early Saturday morning following our first winter storm of the season.

More than a foot of snow fell in parts of northern Iowa. Four to eight inches of snow fell across most of Central Iowa with higher amounts along and north of Highway 20. Click here for the latest snowfall totals.

Road crews worked through the night to clear roadways. Late last night the Iowa Department of Transportation said that travel was not advised for the Des Moines-area and much of Central Iowa. As of Saturday morning, most roads are partially to mostly snow covered according to the DOT. Travel is still not advised along several stretches of roads in Central Iowa.

Cold temperatures will continue through the weekend with warmer temperatures on the way for the work week.
