DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Once again, residents across Iowa are spending their weekend shoveling snow.
Much of the state received snow overnight into Saturday as a winter system moved into the state Friday.
Much of western and central Iowa was expected to get only 2 to 3 inches of snow, but parts of southern and southeastern Iowa were expecting up to a half-foot of snow by the end of Saturday. Some cities, like Clinton and Ottumwa, had declared snow emergencies for Saturday, meaning they have banned parking on emergency snow routes, bus routes and other major arterial streets.
Sunday is expected to usher in more frigid conditions, with temperatures in the single digits, dropping to below zero overnight. Meteorologists say more snow is expected across the state Monday night into Tuesday.
