Snow, Wind, & Turning Colder Sunday

What a beautiful Saturday that felt like early spring with a high of 48° in the Quad Cities and some low-50s across eastern Iowa!

Unfortunately, it won’t last.  Sunday will see a return to what winter typically feels like with snow, blustery winds, and temperatures falling into the 20s.

The snow will begin late Saturday night as a rain and snow mix.  By around daybreak Sunday, the rain will change over to all snow and it’ll snow at a nice pace for about four to six hours.  By afternoon, the snow will start to diminish.

Snowfall amounts will generally be in the 1-3″ range.  Far southern hometowns will see an inch or less of accumulation because it could take longer for the changeover from a rain and snow mix to all snow, plus the ground is still pretty warm after the recent mild temperatures.

Winds will be rather breezy Sunday out of the northeast at about 20-30 miles-per-hour and temperatures will fall through the 20s.

After a cold start to the day Monday, we’ll see more sunshine early next week with temperatures returning to the upper-30s and mid-40s.  It’ll remain mild for all of next week, considering the average high this time of the year is 31°.

If you like this mild weather, enjoy it.  By next weekend, another snow system is looking likely along with some very cold air.
