Accumulating Snow Saturday

UPDATE:  Saturday, January 18, 2014, 7:17 a.m.

During the pre-dawn hours, the warmer air ahead of our next clipper system is moving in and it may produce some flurries or light snow in the early morning hours.

However, the heavier snow will fall during the morning to midday hours and end by late afternoon northwest to southeast across Iowa and Illinois.

Here is a map showing where there is a “Winter Weather Advisory” through 6 p.m. Saturday (in purple).

Saturday Snow Update

Snowfall amounts will generally be in the 2-4″ range in the “Advisory” area with some locations picking up close to 5″.

This is one clipper system where I think the snow totals may be on the higher end of the range.

Be safe and enjoy your weekend.

By the way, we’re now up to 26.2″ of snow for the winter in the Quad Cities, so we only need 3.8″ to push us to the 30″ mark.

Accumulating snow is on the way Saturday.

Since I’m enjoying my four days off, I thought I’d quickly post this for planning purpose.  Please don’t be offended if I don’t answer questions or give personal forecasts.  It’s pretty cut and dry.

A clipper system will bring the heaviest snow where there is a “Winter Weather Advisory” (purple shading) Saturday from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Saturday Snow

While there may be a few isolated total of five inches in the “Advisory” area, most locations will pick up 2-4″.  Outside of the advisory area, 1-2″ will likely fall.

Sunday looks warmer with highs in the 30s to help the snow start melting away.  We may even close in on 40°!

  1. My husband and I are both retired and my son and daughter and her husband do not work weekends so those of you that like sports like we do stay safe and enjoy your weekend. Thank You Anthony for the short and sweet forecast.
