It’s Still Snowing Sunday Afternoon

I admit late Saturday evening and early Saturday night, I was getting a little panic-stricken when it was still raining in parts of the Quad Cities.  But, with the “winter wonderland” out there today, I shouldn’t have been worrying so much.

Snowy Moline

Be very careful on area streets, roads, and interstates because of the accumulated snow and the winds picking up which is causing considerable blowing and drifting snow.  This is Interstate 280 East mid-afternoon Sunday.

I 280 East

It is still snowing across Iowa and Illinois Sunday afternoon and while the heaviest snow is now shifting east of the Quad Cities, a couple more inches of snow could accumulate before it ends tonight.

Here are the forecast amounts I was calling on Saturday with this incoming storm.

Weekend Snowstorm 13115

I also added, “Remember that with any snow event, there could be isolated higher totals in any of these ranges.”

Through 6 p.m., the official total is 13.5″ for Moline (IL); 13.1″ Davenport (IA), and 12.4″ Dubuque (IA).  These will be updated again at midnight.

These totals are from the National Weather Service and their trained weather spotters across eastern Iowa and northern Illinois.

15.3″ Princeton (IL); 15.1″ Sterling (IL); 14.2″ Erie (IL); 13.8″ Le Claire (IA); 13.0″ Anamosa (IA); 12.2″ Rock Falls (IL); 12.0″ Iowa City (IA); 12.0″ Washington (IA); 12.0″ Charlotte (IA); 11.0″ Park View (IA); 10.5″ Mount Carroll (IL); 9.5″ Rock Island (IL); ; 9.0″ Morrison (IL); 8.8″ Muscatine (IA); 8.8″ Galva (IL); and 8.3″ Iowa City (IA).

I’ll have your complete weather forecast bright and early Monday morning on “CBS4 News This Morning” beginning at 5 a.m. — if I can make it into work.
