Light snow is still likely tonight with accumulations under an inch. The heaviest will be south and west of the Quad Cities.
A more potent snow system arrives very late Saturday night, but more so Sunday and early Sunday night. I still think that we’ll see 3″+.
However, in a winter like the one we’ve had, three inches will be the jackpot for snow lovers.
I’ll have another update Friday morning on “Local 4 News This Morning” from 5-7 a.m. See you then!

It’s pretty cold out there today and that won’t change through the weekend and winter is not ready to give up yet.
While we’re running more than six inches below average on snowfall this winter, we have two snow chances coming up before a warm-up next week.
A light snow event is on the way tonight. An inch or less is expected with the heaviest south and west of the Quad Cities.
After a very cold day Saturday starting out at zero with wind chills of -20° to -25°, our weekend focus then turns to Valentine’s Day.
Confidence is growing that we could see three inches or more of snow Sunday and Sunday night.
Keep up on the latest forecast as we move into the weekend.
Good news for those that are ready for winter to end. Warmer weather is on the way next week. We could hit 40° several days.
