A good soaking followed by some crazy wind highlights our weekend

By late tonight, we’ll be on the backside of this system allowing the rain to briefly changeover to snow before ending.  No worse than a good dusting expected especially for areas north of the Quad Cities.

The next highlight will be all that crazy wind starting around the early morning hours on Sunday and lasting throughout the day.  Wind Advisory is in effect from midnight to 9pm Sunday as sustained winds of 30 mph with gusts winds over 50 mph will be likely.  Winds that strong could create power outages.  So, be prepared.
