After hitting 43° in the Quad Cities Sunday with beautiful sunshine, much colder air is on the way for much of this week with some snow.
The first round of snow will arrive later today and tonight.
Accumulations will be around 1-2″ north and northeast of the Quad Cities and around 2-3″ from the Quad Cities southward.
Let’s put this into perspective. Before this snow even arrives, the Quad Cities (officially, in Moline) has already picked up 28.4″ of snow this winter. In a typical winter, we see 31.6″ of snow.
For January, we’re up to 13.6″ of snow. The average for January is 9.4″!
Prior to today’s snow event, we’re only 3.1″ away from this being one of the ten snowiest Januarys on record in the Quad Cities.
More light snow or flurries are in the forecast Wednesday and, again, Friday night and Saturday morning.
Bitterly cold air barges back in tonight through much of the rest of the week.
Overnight lows through Friday morning will be below zero and daytime highs Tuesday and Thursday will only be in the single digits!
Bundle up and brace yourself for the next dose of winter weather!
