Snow To Arrive In The QCA Sunday

Updated:

Get the brushes ready as a fluffy snow will be making its way through the Quad Cities Area Sunday and very early Monday.

Because of the cold air in place the snow will be very fluffy.

It should be fairly easy to brush or sweep off of cars and sidewalks. 

This snow will arrive fairly gently as there won't be a lot of wind to contend with.

So, no snow "storm" here.

Just some light accumulations that will range from ½ to 1 inch from areas southeast of the metro QC to the metro.

From the metro Quad Cities to the north and west 1 to 2 inches are possible.

And northwest of a Washington, Iowa to Galena, Illinois line a bit more than 2 inches are likely.

The only issue of concern with the snow is that the cold air has taken the road and sidewalk surface temperatures below freezing.

This means the snow will likely stick to untreated roads and walkways.

This will provide slippery driving and walking conditions, especially on hills, bridges and curves Sunday into the Monday morning commute.

Along with the snow, the temperatures will stay cold. 

Highs on Sunday will only reach the 20s and lows on Monday morning drop to the low teens which could lead to refreeze of anything that did melt on Sunday.
