After the overnight snow, another round of light snow will move across Iowa and Illinois today.
This is what it looked like in Rock Island, Illinois, at 4 a.m. today.
The first disturbance brought a dusting to about one-half of an inch of snow to eastern Iowa and west-central Illinois before the morning commute.
Another piece of energy bringing snow to western Iowa at daybreak will track across the “Hawkeye State” with snow this morning and early afternoon mainly along and south of Interstate 80.
A “Winter Weather Advisory” is in effect through 6 p.m. Wednesday for hometowns south of the Quad Cities. They’ll likely see 2-3″ of snow.
Along Interstate 80 and for the Quad Cities, 1-2″ of snow will accumulate. Northern hometowns will see a trace to about one-half of an inch.
Tonight will be very cold with lows dropping into the single digits. After a breezy day with highs in the 20s Thursday, we’ll warm up nicely Friday and Saturday with highs around 50°-55°.
