A winter storm spread light to moderate snow across across northeast Missouri, eastern Iowa, and far northwest Illinois late Friday morning into the afternoon.  Snow changed over to sleet and freezing rain during the evening hours across most of the area.  Snowfall amounts ranged 0.5 inches across west central Illinois to 5.5 inches in far northwest Illinois and area of Iowa north of Interstate 80.  Freezing rain reports ranged from a tenth to a quarter of an inch.

Strong winds in excess of 40 mph were seen Saturday afternoon as an arctic cold front pushed through the area.  This caused some blowing and drifting of snow.
