Tuesday Snow Update

UPDATE:  TUESDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2013, 3:32 p.m.

A “Winter Weather Advisory” (purple shading) is still in effect for our northern hometowns until 6 a.m. Wednesday and then for counties closer to, and including, the Quad Cities from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The heaviest snow tonight will be across the north and tomorrow in the Quad Cities and to the south.

Snowfall totals below still look reasonable.

Have a great rest of 2013 and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year’s Eve!

More snow is on the way to eastern Iowa and northern Illinois this afternoon through Wednesday night.   Even before that arrives, we are already going down in the record books in the Quad Cities as one of the snowiest Decembers on record.

Snowy Decembers

With the 1.6″ of snow that fell Monday evening, that pushes our December total to 13.8″ officially in the Quad Cities.  This ranks as the 15th snowiest December on record now.  And, more snow is on the way before midnight, which would push us up higher.

While light snow and flurries are falling across parts of Iowa Tuesday morning, the main snow arrives this afternoon, tonight, and Wednesday.  It will wind down Wednesday night.

Since this snow is fluffy and dry, it will be blown around easily by the wind.

Bitterly cold air follows the fresh layer of snow.

By Friday morning, we’ll see low temperatures of around -10° to -20° and it gets even colder next week.
