A little light wintry mix is sweeping through the region early this morning with just enough to coat the roads in spots. Temps will rise above freezing at 9:00am this morning with a few sprinkles or light snow showers possible into the afternoon. Highs today will reach into the 40s south of the Quad Cities.

A cold blast with very strong wind is likely tonight. Gusts could reach up to 40-45 mph, adding to the chill tonight. We’ll dip into the teens tonight with some single digits near zero Tuesday morning.

A milder weather pattern is expected for the rest of the week with 40s on deck for the weekend.
