CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Temperatures will be plummeting today as our cold front moves in from the northwest. This mean it will NOT be as warm on your way home from school or work. Have the winter coat with you! This front will hit in the early to mid-morning hours across most of the area, with a rapid temperature drop causing icy conditions on area roads. Use caution during not just the morning commute, but whenever you are out today.
The overall snow amounts remain very low with this system (if any at all), and most precipitation should be wrapped up by mid-afternoon.
Wind will pick up immediately after the front passes with gusts to 40mph possible. The wind will still be around into our Friday, though the gusts won't nearly be as bad.
