More Snow Coming To The Quad Cities Saturday Night Through Monday Evening
Get the shovel and snow blower ready to go! More snow is expected to impact the Quad Cities this weekend and lasting through the early part of next week.
This weekend will bring some more snow to the Quad Cities and it will be on and off through Monday evening. We will see most of the snow fall Saturday night and Sunday night through Monday evening. Fortunately, we will have a little break in the snow most of the day on Sunday.
The National Weather Service of the Quad Cities says that light snow will fall Saturday evening across areas north of I-80. The bulk of the snow will fall late Saturday night into early Sunday. The highest snow totals are forecasted to fall along highway 20.
With this snow storm, there is a chance of freezing drizzle before the first storm ends Sunday morning, which will most likely create slick roads.
After this first storm has moved through, we will see about 1-2 inches of new snow on the ground.
The National Weather Service's (NWS) current forecast from Saturday through Sunday is as follows:
- Increasing clouds, with a high near 25. Wind chill values as low as -5. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph.
- Saturday Night
- Snow likely before 3am, then snow likely, possibly mixed with freezing drizzle. Cloudy, with a low around 22. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Little or no ice accumulation expected. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.
