IOWA -- The Iowa State Patrol responded to over 100 calls to service Friday afternoon.

Among those incidents, an Iowa State Patrol vehicle was rear-ended while a trooper helped a motorist in Fremont County.

The Des Moines Police Department responded to 46 reports of vehicle crashes between 1:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Friday. Police said 32 of those crashes involved property damage, two resulted in minor injuries and 12 were hit-and-runs.

Snow totals look to range from 3 to 6 inches across the metro, with 6 to 9 inches possible in a band just southeast of Des Moines. The snow should stop falling before midnight on Friday.

Another wave of moisture will move in for Saturday evening, bringing another chance for snow in central and southern Iowa. The Des Moines metro will be on the far northern edge with another 2 to 4 inches of snow over southeast and far eastern Iowa.

It will be cold this weekend with highs in the upper 20s and low 30s. There is another push of much colder air expected next Wednesday. We may see our first sub-zero temperatures by Thursday next week.
