Temperatures are starting out in the upper single digits in many spots. Thankfully, the wind is pretty light so wind chills aren’t any worse than they were yesterday.
Skies will be mostly sunny today with an increase in the clouds this afternoon. Temperatures will be in the lower 20s this afternoon, still a dozen degrees below normal. Snow will be possible after sundown. That snow will continue into mid-morning Friday when an inch or so will accumulate. Some spots to the southwest of the Quad Cities could see a little more than an inch…just enough to cause a few headaches for Friday morning’s commute.
Temperatures will take a nosedive Friday afternoon with wind chills going double-digits below zero for early Saturday morning. Saturday will be a mighty chilly day. High temperatures will likely only be in the 10-15 degree range.
More light snow is in the forecast for Sunday/Monday where 1-3 inches will be possible. Much warmer air is inbound for the end of next week.
