The storm system will produce most of its snow roughly along and north of Highway 30 … or generally along and north of a line from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Tampico, Illinois, according to the National Weather Service

Its Winter Advisory, in effect until noon on Wednesday, expects snow accumulations of two to five inches, winds of five to 10 miles per hour blowing to the northeast, and temperatures of negative 2 to negative 11 degrees Fahrenheit.
