You know the expression. “You live in the Midwest, so if you don’t like the weather, wait fifteen minutes and it’ll change.”
We’re seeing unprecedented record heat across the Quad Cities this February with five consecutive days with record high temperatures. Today will be the sixth.
Today’s predicted high of 76° in the Quad Cities will set the all-time record warm temperature for February. That was just established this past Sunday when we reached 74°.
As of right now, this is the fifth warmest February on record in the Quad Cities.
Even as temperatures drop back to near 60° for highs Thursday and Friday, that’ll still be well above the average of 38° for this time of the year.
Showers will break out Thursday afternoon and build into a more widespread rain with a few thunderstorms Thursday night and Friday.
By Friday night and Saturday, colder air wraps into the storm system and light snow is possible. We could see some light accumulation from around Interstate 80 northward.
Another wintry mix is possible Sunday.
