Bitter Cold Follows Light Snow Event

UPDATE POST:  Sunday, November 16, 2014, 12:59 p.m.

After officially picking up 1.8″ of snow Saturday in the Quad Cities in Moline, bitterly cold air is on the way for Monday and Tuesday.

Here is a map showing a cold front moving across Iowa Sunday morning.

Look at the 10 a.m. difference in temperatures ahead of the front and behind it.

Bitter Cold On The Way

When you wake up Monday morning, lows will be around 8° to 15°.

We’ll see some flurries tonight and Monday and Monday’s highs will only be in the teens to around 20°.

By Monday night, lows will drop to near zero or the single digits.  Little recovery is expected Tuesday with highs in the low-20s.

Milder air is expected by the end of next week and next weekend!

Our first widespread accumulating snow is taking place across the Plains this morning and it’ll be snowing on us this afternoon and early tonight.

I’m still looking for an inch or two of snow from around the Quad Cities northward and about an inch south.

There could be some isolated 3″ totals.


This map shows the percentages of seeing an inch or more.

The lighter blues and reds indicate a 50-100% chance and I’ve added some snowfall projections on it.

While this is not a big snow event, it’ll cause slick roads and the coldest air of the season comes in behind it for Monday and Tuesday.

We’ll also see some flurries Sunday and Monday in the colder air.

Have a great weekend and stay safe and warm!
