First Alert Day Friday 10/16
UPDATE: Thursday Evening.
DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Temperatures could cool off into the 20s and 30s tonight, especially for areas along and east of the Mississippi. This will likely lead to our first freeze of the year and possible a season ending freeze if we cool off into the mid and upper 20s. For the QC and areas to the west, there will be the possibility of some frost, but clouds and light winds may help keep us from not bottoming out. In any case, to be on the safe side, cover up your plants or bring them inside if you’d like to keep them a little longer. For this reason we issued a First Alert Day from 12AM to 8AM Friday for areas east of the QC metro. Latest models seem to indicate a better chance for clouds and increased winds toward daybreak. Whereas an early drop in temperatures overnight could still get lows into the 20s in some spots, the amount of time at the coldest temperatures might be limited due to the disturbance rolling through the region around daybreak. By then, temps could already be rising from their coldest levels overnight. Bottom line is that it could still get very cold early Thursday night, but ther is the potential that a widespread killing freeze might be limited in scope.
