Cold Blast; Then More Snow (& Ice?)

Two snowstorms into the winter season, I’m watching another system that’ll bring snow to the area Friday and Saturday.

Depending on the path of the storm, we might even see a period of freezing rain and icy weather Friday night and early Saturday.

Stay up on the latest forecast as we head toward the end of the week.

Very cold air is already settling in and even colder air is on the way later this week.

Overnight, we dropped to 9° in the Quad Cities before temperatures started rising.  This was the first time in the single digits since we hit 4° back on February 13, 2016.

The coldest air is still to come.  When we wake up Thursday morning, lows will likely drop below zero and wind chills could reach -20° to -30°.

After the winter storm Friday and Saturday, another blast of cold air arrives for Sunday.
