Snowy Start to March 2014

UPDATED POST:  SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 2014, 4:04 p.m.

It’s finally starting to snow.  While I still expect moderate snow tonight, many locations will probably have less snow than I originally called for yesterday and this morning.

So, basically expect about 2-5″.

February ended up being the snowiest February on record in the Quad Cities with 22.3″ of snow.

March is going to start out pretty snowy, too.

Sick of Winter

After a little bit of snow Friday night into early morning Saturday, we’ll get a break until later today when the next round of moderate snow moves through Iowa and Illinois.

Remember, I’m only the messenger.  But, in reality, I’m shooting for 70″ this winter and the all-time record!

This is where we stood Friday night before the weekend snow in the Quad Cities.

Snow Stats -- Friday Morning

Here is how much snow I’m expecting from through Sunday

Snow This Weekend

Although I put this forecast snow graphic together Friday morning, it still looks reasonable this weekend — give or take an inch.

A “Winter Weather Advisory” is in effect from the National Weather Service pretty much from Saturday afternoon into Sunday for all of the area.


On average, the Quad Cities picks up 4″ of snow in the month of March.

Last March, we saw 10.6″ of snow.

And, March 2012 was the warmest March on record in the Quad Cities with an average temperature of 53.3°.  That was 14.2° above average.

It was also the warmest March on record in the United States.

    Anthony, I’m hoping for Spring WEATHER very soon! It’d be a great birthday present with the 10th Anniversary of my 30th birthday coming on March 10th. 😉
