QUAD CITIES, IA/IL- After light snow overnight we will have about a 12-18 hour window of dry time. Cloudy skies will be around most of today, thus it will be tough to warm up much more than the single digits above zero. This means wind chills will be below zero all day today.

Another round of snow is likely tonight into Saturday morning. With cold air in place it will be light and fluffy and add another 1″-4″ across our area.

Snow covered roads are a good bet Saturday morning. Arctic high pressure will settle in for the weekend resulting in overnight lows near -10º and wind chills near -30º, thus FIrst Alert Days are in effect from Sunday through midday Monday for dangerously cold temps. Signs are pointing to a gradual warming trend next week with highs getting back to the 20s in most areas.
