Spring Yesterday & Now Back To Winter

After the record warm day Tuesday with a high of 69° in the Quad Cities, a strong cold front brought strong to severe thunderstorms to the Mississippi and Illinois Valleys.

At least 24 tornadoes were reported to the Storm Prediction Center Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening.

One of those was in Clinton County, Iowa, just north of the Quad Cities, near Low Moor.

Several tornadoes were reported in La Salle County, Illinois, about an hour or so east of the Quad Cities.  At least one person was killed and one injured near Ottawa, Illinois.

Near Kewanee and Galva, Illinois, in Henry County, there were several reports of large damaging hail.  Some of the hail was larger than golf balls.

The weather today, tomorrow, and Friday will be colder with highs closer to average for early March around the low-40s.

We could see a light wintry mix of rain and snow later today, but a more potent clipper moves through tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night.

This could bring 1-2″ of snow to the north later Thursday and around a dusting to around one-half of an inch in the Quad Cities.

Warmer temperatures are on the way for the weekend.
