It’s still snowing rather nicely in the Quad Cities. We have about two more hours to go before it diminishes to light snow or flurries.
Here are a few updated snow totals: 4.1″ Colona (IL); 3.0″ Moline (IL); 3.0″ Iowa City (IA) and 2.5″ Fort Madison (IA).

I hope you all have a great Sunday and Valentine’s Day. Enjoy your day whatever it is you choose to do.
Some light snow fell late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. That was from the leading edge of warmer air gliding into the area aloft.
Officially, in the Quad Cities in Moline, Illinois, we picked up 0.4″ from midnight to 6 a.m. Around 2″ accumulated around Burlington, Iowa.
Here’s where our heavier snow for today was located around daybreak.
Light to moderate snow will fall from this morning to early afternoon and begin to wind down as flurries tonight.
In addition to the falling snow, winds will be rather brisk causing blowing and drifting snow.
I’m still thinking we’ll see anywhere from 3-5″ of snow, which I’ve been saying for days now.
The only real change is that it’ll be our southern hometowns that might be the big winners when the final totals come in. Some locations may see isolated 6″ totals.
A couple of days ago and even early yesterday, it looked like northern hometowns may see the most. Now, 4″ there might be the high end of the forecast.
I’ll see you bright and early Monday for “Local 4 News This Morning” from 5-7 a.m.
