An upper level storm system tracked east across Iowa Thursday afternoon and evening bringing light and fluffy snow to much of eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois.  Snowfall totals between 2-4 inches were common mainly along a line from Cedar Rapids, to the Quad Cities, to Princeton Illinois. Lighter amounts were seen north and south of this line.  Several accidents occurred on I-80 and on other major roads that caused long delays for motorists.  Temperatures were in the single digits below zero during this event.
