A strong cold front will bring us the coldest air so far this season.
Before the front arrives, temperatures are starting out well into the 60s.
Showers and thunderstorms will become more widespread as Wednesday progresses. Those showers will exit early this evening with clearing skies overnight.
With diminishing winds tonight, lows will drop to around 30° across our far northern hometowns and into the low-to-mid-30s in the Quad Cities.
A “Frost Advisory” and “Freeze Warning” has been issued for much of eastern Iowa and parts of northwestern Illinois Wednesday from 2-9 a.m.
If you have some plants you want to save, you’ll want to cover them this evening or bring them indoors.
