We’ll turn our winds out of the southeast this morning as the next weather system pulls in from the west.  Clouds are expected to increase on Saturday and then lower and thicken as we head into that night.  Later tonight is when the first flakes from this system arrive before departing around lunchtime on Sunday.

Overnight computer runs are shifting the track a bit more south which will lessen amounts even more across the area.  A solid inch appears more realistic from Iowa City through the Quad Cities and Princeton.  Along Highway 34, which covers Mt. Pleasant through Burlington and east through Galesburg and I’m looking close to 2 inches.  North of the Quad Cities will get no worse than a good  dusting.

Temperatures on Sunday will inch up to the upper 20s which may make this snow a heavier, wet snow than the dry snow we just had previously.

We’ll stay dry on Monday as temperatures continue its climb with highs around the freezing mark before peaking on Tuesday with the mercury flirting near 40 degrees.  This bump will be part of the next weather system that will arrive with snow that evening before a change over to a wintry mix that night turns to all rain that Tuesday.

Simply a grab bag of weather in the days ahead.  Have a great weekend everyone!!
